'Sea Anemones' collection

Pia Maria Raeder is committed to interpreting her own abstract vision of nature. Beech wood is at the core of her experimentations on shapes. Each the fruit of hundreds of working hours, her sculptures, reminiscent of biomorphic forms, have an emotional communicative presence. The breath of life seems to animate these organic creations, like the echo of a nature that is not imitated but is rather harnessed and experienced.
Pia Maria Raeder personally designs and hand crafts each work herself in her workshop in Munich from thousands and thousands of simple beechwood elements, wooden rods or pearls that she patiently arranges one by one on a hand-carved body. Emancipated from its limits, the wood hence transformed into undulating living forms is offered a newfound freedom. A lacquer or a metallizing process, customized for these works, then fully reveals the aesthetic and sensible dimension of her creations.
Pia Maria Raeder has become globally known for her ‘SEA ANEMONES’ series that reflects the beauty found on the ocean floor. Launched in 2016, the collection now includes twenty pieces, encompassing many typologies in which function and poetry fuse: side and coffee tables, mirrors, chairs, chandeliers, floor lamps and table lamps, vases. More than 400 hours of work and 29,000 beechwood rods are necessary to produce the ‘Sea Anemones Family’ set, made of three side tables completed by two sculptures.
In 2019 Pia Maria Raeder pursues her exploration of nature with the ‘STARDUST’ series the first pieces of which were presented at The Salon Art+Design in New York.
