Drew Spangenberg - Oversized 'Ensemble Series' Decanter with Stopper in Aubergine
Drew Spangenberg's Ensemble series is an ongoing study of form and colour. Taking the bottle for inspiration, Drew has taken a typically functional object and made it purely decorative.
'People often struggle with the fact these objects have no function and I get a kick out of that.' - Drew Spangenberg
A series of 5 works were made for and exhibited at Craft's 'Inside' exhibition in 2020.
