Gull Water - Gull Water is a project that evokes the sensations of Southern California beaches. Although not the most attractive, SoCal beaches has a very distinct aesthetic to them. This project was not initially inspired by the beach but by a group of Seagulls gathered on a wet cement slab on a drizzly morning. The unique shape of the California Gull’s beak inspired the shape for the faucet and to cary on the Gull feel I sculpted some simplified wings as handles. The material is cast and polished Aluminum. I chose this material because of the SoCal beaches. I do not remember a time when I went to the beach and didn’t see a sand blasted can shining in the sand. SoCal beached have a certain feel of modern, natural and sometimes kinda trashy but in a way that has a certain harmony.

  • This is way cool. I like the idea of the design that transforms when it is used. When the Hot or Cold water is on it changes the look of the faucet scupture as a whole. I would push this idea on a set of new sketches.... Cool... Joe
