For Los Angeles-based designer David Wiseman, design is a way of “investigating ways of bringing nature indoors.” The Rhode Island Institute of Design graduate finds inspiration in the beauty of the natural world—flowers, crystals, insects, branches, and glaciers—forms he transforms into ceramics, lighting, installations, and decorative objects with painstaking craft. He began his career creating vases and other small objects, but recently his work has veered towards the monumental with large-scale installations in the conspicuously fragile medium of ceramic, including a 35-foot-tall tree for the West Hollywood Library, and more than 500 handmade porcelain lily-of-the-valley blossoms for the Christian Dior flagship in Shanghai. His work was included in the 2007 National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City.
