  • Metamorphosis is hand-carved, following organic designs of crawling ivy. Much like the Bilbao shelf, Metamorphosis is another attempt by the artist to recreate the great old ivy that grew on his childhood home. As a child, Errazuriz would use the thick branches that ran next to the wall as a natural shelf to store his garden toys. The final piece of this project was sculpted in Italy in a long tedious process, balancing aesthetics with structure, stability, and the natural functionality of a bookshelf.
