Hand carved wood bowls by Casey Reed Johnson

Function follows form. Inspired by function but guided by form, the designer's working principle is to first conjure the shape, then work to make the function aparent.

Working with the time-honored creative practice of observing nature and the figure, the process is to then abstract and extract from this penultimate fount to develop new sculptural shapes. This method is a means to discover and reveal the relationship between natural and the artificial.
