PROVIDENCE, RI — Earlier this year we divided our collection into two distinct categories: J Schatz and J Schatz Earth. J Schatz is our playful, engaging, and colorful side and J Schatz Earth is our earthbound and primitive side with evidence of the hand. We enthusiastically pursued new works for both collections this year with a focus on lighting, installation, and objects.

J Schatz new works include Bubble Lamp Pairs, Happening Circle, Doodle Mobile, and Imbroglio Wall Sculpture. J Schatz Earth new works include Gold Amorphous Sculpture, Links and Buoys Wall installations, Amorphous Lamp Pairs, and Angles Table.

Available as a pair in platinum or white. Retail price is $950.

J Schatz Imbroglio Wall Sculpture
