This sculptural mini-bar piece, is from the same body of work as Tipping Point. Tipsy, again plays with balance, but here the work appears neither to be able to stand up, nor substantial enough to hold weight, yet through geometry and material technology, it is both completely sturdy and immensely strong.


Like an outline sketch, a curved arc projects from the balancing curved base from floor to bar height, flattening horizontally to offer a bar surface. The structure is bizarrely thin, just 2mm in some areas, which suggests a sense of fragility and delicacy, as though the work has been simply folded from a piece of paper and precariously balanced on its side. It is indeed incredibly light, and could easily be moved around wherever its need should arise.
