Phil Renato’s Designs

By on November 10th, 2010 in blog

Phil Renato is an Associate Professor at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but he’s also an amazing designer. We admire his tagline: 
My work oscillates between mass-produced and one-of-a-kind, trendy and timeless, fashionable and filthy. I make jewelry and functional wares that engage playful, intimate,  procreative subjects using primary, nodal, lickable forms; flowing between the personal, political, technical, and absurd.
Pictured is one of his several amazing creations: a representations of the famous George Hart Torzie, produced on a 3D printer, based on 16th century wooden torus. 
Phil Renato: 
I am source filtered through eyes, mind, hand, technology, material. This practice is my impulse, drug, orgasm, prayer, song.
