I see the job of an artist as that of a philosopher of visual experience. I am interested in how meaning is contained within objects, and how I can illustrate and manipulate that meaning. I am interested in how memory, familiarity, scale, craft, and functionality factor into investigation. — Roy McMakin

Based out of Seattle, designer, furniture maker, and artist Roy McMakin blurs the line between fine art and design object. In his work, McMakin plays with the form and function of domestic pieces, challenging the concepts behind traditional designs with humor, as seen in Untitled (Vases about Language and Redemption). Here, each vase is inspired by a well-known form, with elements removed to question their existence as functional vessels.
