Plane Cloud

Two NSCAD University in Halifax alums, Mike Sharpe and Dennis Hale, joined forces in February 2013 and are applying their individual expertise – Mike’s is in silversmithing and sculpture (he has pieces in the Musee Mandet collection in Riom, France), while Dennis is a third-generation woodworker specializing in sculpture and conceptual art – to fine furniture guided by a “tree to table” approach. Storyboard salvages ill-fated trees in the Greater Toronto Area from its clients’ own property to create beautiful custom objects with ecological integrity – for example, the Plane Cloud Pendant Lamp, which was launched at Toronto’s Interior Design Show in January.
