Those Who Seek...

Some people spend their whole lives searching for love. But maybe it was there all along, if only they could flip their perspective. Based on his renowned twenty-foot sculpture, Michael Kalish crafts this tabletop vase and candelabra version of "The Art of Finding Love." The work is a twisty blend of geometric shapes, until you identify the perfect vantage point where "love" reveals itself. Lay it on its side and fill it with a colorful collection of flowers, or place it vertically and it becomes a stunning candelabra. An artful gift for weddings, anniversaries, or even a loved one's birthday, it adds a touch of contemporary charm to any space. Hand-carved from poplar wood in California.

Made in California

Art critic Reed Busk said, “Being surrounded by [Michael] Kalish's work makes one feel like the best days are yet to come.” If you've had the pleasure of seeing his twenty-foot “Love” sculpture, you'd know this to be true. Everything Michael makes is meant to aesthetically please, but it's also intended to move us. With an eye for architectural design and fine art, his mediums aren't always conventional, from cut bits of license plates to recycled automobile parts. There are also always dimensions to Michael's work. His “love” sculpture turned table-sized candelabra looks like an intricate, geometric puzzle from most angles, but at an exact vantage point the word emerges. However you assign meaning to his work, his goal is to get us thinking about what's within, what's below the surface, and what was always there if only we turned our heads. Michael lives in Los Angeles.
