Vakil Kuner Sculpture

Metal and Wood Sculpture

I studied design and architecture at the University of Pennsylvania and later studied figurative sculpture with Alan LeQuire. My studies developed a sensibility for the emotions that can be engendered by space.

Initially I worked in wood particularly plywood finding the life that can be brought out in this most processed of materials. Then I made a wonderful discovery that metal also was living and I now work in wood, steel, and aluminum.

My sculpture tries to manifest the life in space through the life in forms. In most of my work there is interplay between the artificial and the natural, and between the manifest and the non-manifest.

Most recently I have rediscovered wood by creating wood bowls, transforming cut logs into useful art.
