Doug Johnston’s Sculptural Vessels

Published:  November 8, 2013

A tactile combination of softness and flexibility, Doug Johnston’s Sculptural Vessels teeter on the edge of impracticality, an almost-useful form, but mainly just a lazy object. Curved and organic, these cotton threaded sculptures follow a muted and nautical colour palette that is irresistible, but being unable to complete the traditional ‘vessel’ function, they do beg the question—‘What on earth do I put in there?’ Perhaps the answer is nothing at all.  An appealing construction of abstract and eccentric functionlessness.
