“I’m Looking To Use The Language I’ve Created Through My Sculpture And Furniture Practices In New And Interesting Ways. I Don’t Want To Become Another Artist Who Makes The Same Thing Over And Over Again Because It Sells. I Don’t Want To “Do “ What Works.” Something Needs To Change.

Fernando Mastrangelo

All of his artworks are sculpted by hand from natural or repurposed materials such as sand, salt, silica, and crushed or powdered glass. The top product designer’s passionate concern with ecological issues continues to influence his growing design language.
