Sculptural objects can enhance physical space in a way that is unique from wall-hanging artwork. They introduce a distinct sense of presence in the home and invite guests to engage with art both visually and physically. If you’re looking to master the curated look and add a bit of artistic flare to your space, consider some of our favourite picks from local shops and makers.

Natural Forms

In her DesignTO debut, artist Elena Mahno showcased a collection of ceramic vessels inspired by organic feminine silhouettes. While the festival may be over, this unique art piece makes a great collectible for your home gallery and doubles as a vase for delicate flowers. Pricing upon request, through Elena Mahno.

Sculptural Objects


Among the many one-of-a-kind objects in Leslieville’s Mararamiro, this unglazed sculpture by local ceramicist Angela Cho proves the beauty of handmade vessels – even in their most raw and natural state. $1,150, at Mararamiro.

Diego Olivero


In collaboration with industrial designer Diego Olivero, the Black Circles Floor Sculpture measures 41 inches tall, making it a standout feature for minimalist living rooms and workspaces. $224, at West Elm.

Interior designer Athena Calderone’s La Struttura Terracotta Sculpture draws the eye upward to break the plan of a room. Finished by hand, each warm and earthy sculpture is entirely unique. $60, at Crate & Barrel.

Southern Charm

Obakki has a reputation for working with some of the most talented artisans of Mexico. The Danzante textile table sculpture is a testament to this, hailing from the workshop of female makers in Querétaro. It’s made of 100 per cent raw cotton, sansevieria, waxed thread, wood and steel. $375, at Obakki.

Round sculpture

Right Round

Made of solid concrete, the Allium Sphere won’t roll away thanks to a subtly designed flat bottom. Measuring about the size of a softball, this sculptural object displays well on its own or in clusters. $16, at Mkt.
