Black Atlas Minky – III
Grown Crystals, Sealant, Synthetic Rubber
One of three in a series by artist Justin Sullivan of Black Atlas.
“Exploring the juxtaposition of a modern material like synthetic rubber and a very organic material like wood is a great contrast for me. I love those intersections of materiality. Growing crystals on the toy is a process I’ve been experimenting with for a while and combining it with the other two elements gave it a great asymmetry and natural feeling.”
Minky is hand carved from Suar wood at the Blamo workshop and customized by hand in The Black Atlas Atelier Los Angeles. He stands approximately 7.5″ tall and comes in a hand-made box.
