We are Pamela Holmes and Brad Wilson, artists based in northern California. We make all of the work ourselves and received our MFAs from Otis Parson’s School of Design in 1983. We try to make work that is alive and has an affinity with nature. We will consider custom work. Email or call us today if you would like to purchase our work or visit our studio.
The Alchemy of Concrete
“Since the inception of Holmes Wilson Tables, I have tried to incorporate my art into the business. Antiquity — the wondrous spectacle of aging — is a defining aspect of my art, and it has found itself into my tables as well. Many pieces appear aged, full of crackles, while the structural integrity of the concrete is not compromised. Those who want pristine, Corian-esque surfaces may find my work disappointing. I’m always interested in working with those with adventurous spirits and collaborating with designers.” –Pamela
The Nature of Wood and Steel
“Wood and steel are difficult substances to manipulate, and I continue to learn techniques on how to shape them into aesthetic forms. A crafstman’s touch can turn these stubborn materials into nearly unbreakable pieces of furniture, a feat I take great pride in. Random elements of nature, such as knots in a wood or rust patinas that can evolve on steel, often give a flair to a piece that otherwise would be absent. ” –Brad
