Brent at Gray Conversations // Sorrento Sessions
Brent will be part of a discussion panel in the first of a five-part series at Seattle’s historic, newly updated Sorrento Hotel. In the revamped lobby Fireside Room and the penthouse-level Top of the Town, GRAY editors will moderate dynamic panel discussions with creative thinkers and top design talent from all corners of the Pacific Northwest—providing a more intimate, face-to-face experience for both trade and design enthusiasts.
The first panel will be titled “Pacific Northwest Design Now” and what does Pacific Northwest design look like right now, and where is it going? And whether “regional design” even exists anymore in today’s hyper-connected, globalized world. The event will take place April 9th @ 7pm in the Sorrento Hotel Fireside Room, 900 Madison St., Seattle.More Insights
The drum has been a coveted instrument of pleasure and ceremony as far back as history itself. I am intrigued by the tendency in a piece of this mass to “check” or crack toward the heart as it dries.The check is an anticipated release of tension, which interrupts the rhythm of the natural timeline. This elemental form exudes empowerment and innocence.View Furniture
This unintentional legacy left behind by these coastal communities is a snap shot into the lives
of these ancient people. The Florencia Bay sculpture is a metaphor for culture, community, and the transference of knowledg. and an homage to a specific place on Vancouver Island.
This large dining table was produced for Yew seafood + bar in downtown Vancouver, which is located inside the Four Seasons hotel. I had initially done a smaller dining table and a wall sculpture many years ago for a different space within the restaurant. This massive table is constructed of Western Maple and is 28 feet in length.View Space
