Ghost Garden SS Pedestal

The growth from each branch is supportive of the whole and extends beyond the boundary of function. We live our lives alongside nature while utilizing its peaceful offerings. Ghost Garden embodies our sense of hope for co-existence and healing around our landscape scapes.

With its minimalist design featuring two rounded surfaces, this piece adds a subtle sense of art and utility to any space, such as entranceways, room corners, or other desired locations.


This Ghost Garden SS Pedestal is made of stainless steel and brass, is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.


Stainless steel contains at least 10.5% chromium, which makes it resistant to rust and corrosion, unlike mild steel, which is more prone to rust. Generally, stainless steel is stronger and harder than mild steel, making it more challenging to bend without cracking if not done properly. Brazing stainless steel is also more difficult due to the higher temperatures required and the need to prevent oxide formation on the surface.


It was created for presentation at WantedDesign Manhattan ICFF in 2023.
