Art objects + Installations.
Art objects and installations pieces are made from reclaimed wood or stone that Teasdale fashions into symbolic forms, rather than furniture. The purpose is simply beauty and a story – shapes seen fallen in nature, transformed by TDS into objects of praise and legacy. Standing alone, or in curated groups, these totems are forces of nature that make time stand still when gazing upon them.
Below are some of TDS’ ceramic and glass inlay work, all commissioned by loyal collectors. Current work is inspired by them, with TDS’ using its epic ability to capture movement and delicacy with otherwise static materials.
32’’ & 39’’.
A diptych, these totems are an asymmetrical pair that can live both in water and land, calling to be held in their loops, or just to hold a gaze. They were crafted from reclaimed driftwood found in the Hudson River.
17’’ – 25’’
A group of five, the standing stones feel very much alive as they still have green tinted lichen living on them. Evoking the ancient megalithic stone circles of Teasdale’s ancestors, they were crafted out of granite that Teasdale found in a creek in the Rocky Mountains outside of Boulder Colorado.
82’’ x 14’’ x 5’’.
Standing over 6 feet tall, the Mermaid King commands praise and presence. Hand-crafted from an ancient maple stump TDS harvested, details include one eye gazing through the piece and beautiful pebbles and stones, encased into the wood over time.
26’’ – 35’’
A triptych, these stones meet concrete look almost fossilized as if they were always meant to stand preserved this way. They were also crafted from granite that Teasdale found in a creek in the Rocky Mountains, right outside of Boulder Colorado.
Brass Dinosaur - Bronto
56’’ x 21’’.
A wall installation portraying a 5 foot long brontosaurus skeleton, it was meticulously crafted from brass, which was then inlayed into concrete. It evokes the process of time, fossilization, and petrification, which is inherent across all of TDS’s work. Bronto is part of the artist’s private collection.
42’’ x 54’’.
A wall installation that features hand blown glass murrine, cut and inlayed into concrete. It envokes the movement and joy of falling water. An homage to Gustav Klimt, one of Teasdale’s inspirations, the piece resides in a private collection in Westchester, NY.
27’’ x 58’’.
A tryptich wall installation that accentuates Teasdale’s mastery of color and form, it was created from sheet glass and fused glass, inlayed into concrete. Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s collection of Japanese Wood Block Prints, it is part of a private collection in NYC.
37’’ x 50’’.
A dyptich wall installation composed of sheet glass & steel inlayed into concrete, it was crafted from many thousands of pieces of glass and steel, accentuating the meticulous detail of TDS’s work. It portrays the relationship of breath between many humans (steel) and one great tree (glass). The piece is part of a private collection in the Hudson Valley, NY.
