“Objects of desire are the business of Joe Sheehan. Works of art that deliver a tender punch-to-the-gut moment at first sight.
The thing with a Sheehan... it’s impossible to encounter one and not want it. His work conjures the kind of ardent starry-eyed longing normally reserved for other matters of the heart.
The detritous and filler of a material world – lightbulbs, tv remotes, entire dwellings reduced to silhoutte – are rendered glorious in stone. For Objectspace, 10 perfect homes. A ring, a pendent, a pint-sized sculpture. However you decide to to live with yours prepare to fall in love.” – Kim Paton

Carved from stone, this Wear-House Ring can't be resized. Good thing it's an equally exquisite pendant or "pint-sized sculpture".
We’ve commissioned five unparalleled makers to create their own unique series of Objectspace limited editions for Weekly Objects 2023. All proceeds go to the artist and Objectspace. Win. Win.
