This piece highlights the often overlooked beauty of end-grain. Drawing inspiration from a traditional Chinese medicine cabinet it creates the illusion of a simple log stack by carefully arranged veneer interspersed by white resin fractures. On the drawer fronts, white resin fills fractures and the centre ring, which becomes the handle. The sides of the drawers are painted white, as well as the back, to give the illusion that the white is spilling out from the inside of the cabinet through the cracks on the front.
Olive Ash, Alpaca Wool Blend
In this piece we have combined the art of woodworking and knitting. It is an attempt to harmonize two materials that are not commonly found together. The strong characteristics of the wood are balanced by a soft touch of yarn that has been hand knitted as a pocket for everyday storage. The craftsmanship of dovetailed drawers offers a unique and timeless beauty and elaborates upon the simple design of the piece.
Round About Stool
american walnut stool / side table
This piece is design as an “all lathe” project, having three different shaped legs to offer a playful silhouette and a top surface that blends with the legs to create a seamless effect on the joint. This project has been made using different shaping techniques, starting with hand turning the legs and the top, angle grinding a rough shape between the top and the legs and a final sanding to achieve an over-all smooth surface and continuity. The legs thread into the top for easy transport.
Ash, Elm, Walnut
This Stool has been inspired by “JUNE” desk, hence the name. It mirrors the smooth radius of the desk and the shadow lines are carefully placed between every change of grain direction to respect wood movement and prevent any visual and tactile interruptions between the joints. The stool shape and finish creates a comfortable and tactile piece to sit on. This stool is slightly angled forward to naturally rotate your hips and encourage good posture.
