'Radiant Disk'

Michele Oka Doner

1999 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

At the early age of 7, Michele Oka Doner came upon a Venetian grotto chair in Florida. This observation taught her "that furniture doesn't have to be mundane." Later on in her career, Doner created furniture, works of art which are tied closely to mythology and celestial surroundings. Ice Ring represents the ice rings found around Saturn as captured in photographs by the space craft Voyager. In the center is Radiant Disk, incised with radial marks that attract and channel light. The difference in surface treatments of the two works contrast references to the coldness of Saturn’s ice rings with the bright, warmth of the sun.
