Another Dimension.

Quite literally, this is the difference between sculpture and flat art. Yet, an additional set of measurements can not completely define sculpture. Modern sculpture has long had the ability to engage one’s senses. Calder’s mobiles and Bertoia’s sound sculptures were among the first to employ such concepts. But it is a simple tactile response that has been the most intimate way to experience sculpture for millennia. For example, the rough, tortured surface of Peter Voulkos’ work practically begs to be touched; an invitation to experience what the artist experienced. And it is almost impossible to get a full appreciation for Peter Krasnow’s sublime perfection without feeling the seemingly liquid surface of his wood carvings. In this catalogue you will find over 100 lots of pure sculpture; works of Fine Art that were created with no other purpose than to provoke a response. The best way to experience them, however, is in person, in the round. As for furniture, it too is best experienced in person. Sit on Nakashima’s Greenrock stools around his low dining table and share the craftsman’s own vision of the ideal dining experience. Rest your jacket on Wegner’s Valet chair. Spin yourself in rhythmic circles on Gideon Kramer’s Ion chair. What you may come to realize is that function alone is only part of what makes good design work so well. Another part is intangible; a simple pleasure of discovery and interaction that brings fulfillment to collecting. We hope you will discover that including one or more of these exciting offerings in your collection might just, who knows, add another dimension.

tions achieved through welding. As his work developed, Lassaw became one of the first American sculptors to abandon conventional techniques and embraced an abstract style that employed

space as a dominant structural role. Lassaw produced sculptures that allowed the eye to ‘enter into’ the spatial area without having to walk around it, as in older styles. His vision belongs to the

New York abstract expressionist style, in which he participates in immediate inspiration and apparent accident, in which he used to focus on the concept of structure isolated in infinite space.

Mostly known for his landmark public art sculptures in New York City, Tony Rosenthal created sculptures out of many mediums including wood, steel, iron, and aluminum, as well as in an array of sizes ranging from a few inches to a several hundred feet. Originally from Chicago, Rosenthal was encouraged by Charles and Ray Eames, whom he met at Cranbrook, to move to Los Angeles, where he found great demand to construct sculptures

for new buildings. In 1956, his home and studio in Malibu was destroyed in a fire. His sculptures were lain outside for safety, but changed in color to a burnt red due to the fire. (These flame-induced sculptures had a solo exhibit, and later traveled to Pittsburgh.) Rosenthal employed an abstract expressionist style, similar to his contemporaries, but used sculpture to create what his instinctual creative conscious insisted upon.


Natzlers’ wind bells are unusual because they differ from the delicate, precise forms of the bowls. The surface of the bells has been worked by hand; including details perforated with a point and repeated stamping. The expressionistic style of the bells’ surface suggests Peter Voulkos’ idea of torturing the clay, which in the Mid-1960’s was a groundbreaking technique, and shows that the Natzler’s were aware of the idea of working outside of traditional decoration. LAMA wishes to thank Gail Reynolds Natzler for her assistance in cataloguing these Natzler lots.

George Nakashima formulated his own vocabulary of design and craftsmanship based on his interest of natural forms and use of fundamental materials. In many instances, he would be asked to tone down his initial sketches for custom pieces. One client famously complained about the natural fissure in a slab selected for his dining table to which Nakashima replied “Go to Macy’s!”

The following 16 lots were commissioned by a family who visited the Nakashima compound and were so overcome with the experience, they not only began placing orders, but also encouraged Mr. Nakashima to create works for them that embodied his phliosophies. The result is a collection with many rare and special details.

The abstract expressionistic nature of Voulkos’ creations began after he attended Black Mountain College in Ashville, NC in 1953, and that summer when he lived in New York City and met Franz Klein and Willem de Kooning. In New York City Voulkos was in the middle of an artist explosion, exposed to the New York School’s “action” painting and abstract expressionism. In 1954 Voulkos moved to Los Angeles, where he set up a ceramics

department at Otis College. As a teacher he didn’t lecture or instruct. He just worked. Influenced by Picasso, Japanese Raku pottery, and the American “action” school of art, Voulkos allowed the expressionistic nature of the clay to come to life as he created quickly to stimulate new ideas, just like his contemporaries of the time, Klein and de Kooning., who were similarly embracing spontaneity as a force in paintings and other mediums.

Peter Krasnow moved to Los Angeles in 1923, where he was highly influenced by the landscape and change of light. Krasnow’s unusual style evolved over the course of his life, in which he explored painting, print-making, drawing, and sculpture. Initially his dark, rich cityscape paintings morphed into light landscape watercolors, which granted him

an exhibition in San Francisco that served as a catalyst to his future success; however he moved to France to continue to develop his work. Upon returning to Los Angeles in 1934, Krasnow was heavily influenced by the wood sculptures in European museums and as a result spent approximately the next twenty years creating wood sculptures

called “demountables”. He was fascinated by the glorification of the wood not as an organic medium, but as a medium that could be transformed to look like bronze or marble. Krasnow’s “demountables” are hand-carved, totem-pole figures that consist of intertwining geometric shapes and celebrate the knots and details in the wood.

California Sales Tax Sales tax of 9.25% will be collected on all purchases removed from our premises or delivered within the state of California. Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number.

Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum. If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc, reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice.

Estimates & Reserves

Guarantee

The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices.
