Crystal Wagner

Crystal Wagner-1-Design Crush

 

Crystal Wagner‘s large-scale installations are the stuff creative dreams are made of. The colorful organic shapes seem to grow and burst at the seems right before your eyes as each piece multiplies and develops. If you pay attention you’ll note the natural occurrences  – forest-like themes, groves, etc. – that are inspired by Wagner’s extended stays in national parks like Yellowstone and Joshua Tree. (But if you’re too busy staring in awe I can’t blame you.)
