PROCESS + MATERIALS
The form of the table was hand carved in maple. It was then cast in 94% recycled red-bronze alloy. The casting was hand polished and bathed in elixirs and flames to patina the surface of the metal. The top is composed of solid Wisconsin Black Walnut.
Jordan Mozer + Associates, Ltd. adapted the ruins of an old iron foundry to create a boutique hotel and destination restaurant in Hamburg, Germany in 2004-5. In addition to acting as design architects, Mozer's team designed and fabricated architectural components, artwork and furnishings for the property. Most of the elements were informed by foundry forms and techniques as well as an interest in evoking in guests the surreal wonder of a Westerner in Asia for the first time. The GooseGuß ("goose-goose") table was designed and manufactured by Mozer for East in Hamburg, Germany. "GOOSEGUß" - While working on the hotel the artist lived in the Gänsemarkt, the old Goose Market. This suggested the gooseneck form of the table... “Guss Metal” in German translates to “cast metal”. "Guss" sounds like "goose".
This 2018 variation on the original cast aluminum table is composed of bronze with a solid wood top.
