THE CURRENT

VOL. 4
The world around us is elemental.
MATERIAL
Constructed from both natural and manmade components that shape our physical and psychological landscapes. In this edition, we focus on the importance of the tactile tracers that connect the dots between past and present, future and possibility, then and now. Here and there. From glass to wood to stone to textiles, the four materials contained in this volume come alive through the makers who learn from their composition and wield wonder from their construction. The journey of producing Volume 4 has taken us around the globe and back again to discover the intrinsic value in the treasures—manmade, and manufactured found and excavated that give meaning and lend beauty to our lives.
TEXTILE
TEXTILES ARE TIME STAMPS
WRITTEN IN FIBER.
WHETHER RAW THREADS OR FINISHED FABRICS,
THEY ANCHOR A WORK OF ART IN THE MOMENT OF ITS CREATION,
DEFINE THE TONE OF AN INTERIOR,
lend warmth and character
to exterior spaces
and knit the world around us into a unique tapestry of patterns, colors and textures—a tactile remnant of a temporal expression.
STONE
Bewitching, captivating, consuming and anchoring, stones are the literal and proverbial jewels in man’s material crown. 
Whether mining for gems, excavating ancient renderings, unearthing marble or undertaking any other act that delivers rocks from their moorings in the ground, 
the sense of discovery that comes from freeing these elemental relics from the deep
to find a place in the spotlight of our daily lives
is as moving as the items themselves— and part of the allure of the timeless treasure hunts they inspire.

GLASS
CLEAR AS A BELL
as luminous as the stars, as transfixing as ocean waves  
and as revealing as
a camera lens. Glass is both fragile and enduring,
a shield-like layer of Perspective between our eyes and our vision.

WOOD
Strong and malleable,
new and reclaimed, 
versatile and purposeful.
Wood is the sturdiest chameleon in the material world, 
blending natural forms with man’s hand in a way that links organic creation with intentional craftsmanship, 
and natural terrain with the built environment.
