Made in Los Angeles
Wood, brass, leather - utilized in cathartic, unexpected ways, the work of Ramsey Conder draws on inspiration that ranges from the sleek lines of the automobile, to the poetic irregularity of the natural world. Educated in art and design, Conder’s extensive experience includes a prolific stint at Tesla, where he was key in the production of the company’s revelatory Tesla Model S. Functional, yet intrinsically sculptural, his designs reflect a keen eye for shape and form, matched with artistic whimsy. Throughout a varied career, Conder’s output has included to everything from furniture and lighting to cups and even toilet brush stands. Conder uses solely solid materials - gold, brass, bronze, steel, wood, and leather - and creates by sand casting and lost wax casting methods. Time and loving wear lends both a complex patina, and an evolving narrative to all his work.
