Atelier Gryphon Art Lives Here: Brent Comber


BRENT COMBER

Brent Comber Originals is an art and design studio that creates sculpted objects, functional pieces and design environments. Brent’s work is deeply rooted in a knowledge of, and respect for, place.

Materials are sustainably sourced from the surrounding area, and designed and milled at his oceanfront workshop and gallery. Through the exploration of materials; wood, stone, glass, resources are taken at their purest form and transformed into objects of recognition yet the fundamental elements remain. Brent takes care to ensure that every piece retains its story, its relationship with the greater system, and that this story remains visible throughout his body of work.

Brent’s own story is similarly rooted, he is the fourth generation of his family to be raised within the Pacific Northwest. Ranging from residential to commercial installations, the spirit of the coast is embedded into his work. This aesthetic interpretation has been recognized both locally and globally, his work has been shown as far as Paris, London, Japan, Bora Bora and beyond. Brent continues to explore themes unique to the Pacific Northwest that connect people to this unparalleled setting and the history and dynamism of the landscape.

Tantalus Gardens

Our vision for Tantalus Gardens is a "pocket community" - a tight-knit residential area connected by pathways and garden spaces. We are planning for 8 duplexes (approximately 2,200 square feet in size) with three-bedroom layouts, beautiful outdoor spaces and underground parking, as well as 6 well-planned 'lagom homes'. What does 'lagom' mean? “Lagom” is a Swedish word that means "just right". What's more, we are planning to incorporate heritage details from St. Monica's Church into each home, bringing a touch of artistry into living spaces while preserving artifacts that are important to the community.
