For Coffey, defying expectations is an important aspect of producing work. Abandoning symmetry in his designs, he prefers to create hollows and rounded shapes which people can fill. To Coffey’s eye, a piece which is perfectly symmetrical is also “quiet,” and does nothing to arouse questions or feelings in the mind of the viewer.
