Isaac Katzoff

Isaac Katzoff's work showcases his interest in the everyday object. Items found in garages and tool sheds, often maligned or invisible but yet integral to making, fixing and building by hand.

This latest series of work in glass reflects his interest in re-building cars and motorbikes, an interest with strong links to our broader DIY culture.

"An object, the material with which it is made; the equipment required to locate, extract and refine ores and raw materials; the iterations of methods, processes and machines that have perfected its function; the energy required to imagine and realize a problem and its solution; the decades, centuries, millennia through which it will travel, are all inherent in its form."
