About this Artist
"Materials are my inspiration. I constantly see opportunities to use them in new and unexpected ways."
Josh Urso approaches furniture making from a scientific point of view. Focusing on the interaction of materials with the laws of nature, Urso creates pieces of furniture that exhibit scientific principles and properties: resin that changes from solid to liquid in an exothermic reaction or rope that has a tensile strength that is strong enough to lift a car. There is a connection between the kind of wonder people experience with natural phenomenon and the reaction of people to Josh Urso's work. By utilizing the unique properties of materials, Urso creates an unforgettable experience in reason and tactility.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
