When asked to produce these pieces with Lawson-Fenning, Vincent drew his inspiration from Japanese art. The impact that the Japanese aesthetic is able to achieve through simplicity was the starting point. From there, he combined these principles with his own obsession with growth and decay. The result is a collection of objects in wood and bronze that are both calm in massing and provoking in detail.
Vincent Pocsik attended graduate school for architecture at Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. Shortly after graduating, he opened a studio in downtown Los Angeles, which developed into the studio he runs today.
Vincent’s work balances old and new fabrication techniques to breathe new life into materials while holding onto the richness of the past. This process is influenced by the desire to push the traditional boundaries of mediums such as wood, glass, and metal so each work transforms into an anatomical expression and presence of its own.
All pieces are made inside his shop in Los Angeles or done with local Los Angeles craftsmen.
