Phillip Mann Studios

My work exists at the nexus of art, design and craft. The merging of these creative disciplines allows for limitless possibilities. The personal, expressive nature of fine art is enhanced by the disciplined research and deliberation of design and implemented with the skill and attention to detail of the highly trained artisan. This combination also encourages innovation, as one discipline challenges the assumptions and traditions of another, and the struggle results in a piece of work that is the purest expression of my idea.

My current work explores my longtime interest in humanity’s ability to communicate meaning, ideas, and values through the objects we make.
