Charred willow with cast pewter inlay, (35x12x12cm)
Another in the Heartwood series which explores the capacity for wood to be totally transformed yet retain its underlying natural form - in this case highlighting the grain and the natural splits. Charring willow gives it a particularly profound dark colour and texture.
Charred Ash with cast pewter inlay. (50 x 30 x 30cm)
Here I have moved away from the sharp contrast of som of my other work and the charring is used to highlight the natural grain of the wood as well as the dark interior splits. This is a very tactile piece inviting the viewer to stroke it with clean (!) fingers.
Light and Dark A study in sharp contrasts. This piece is made from charred norwegian spruce (55x40x40cm)
This statement piece (100kg, 122x40x30cm) is made frome deeply charred ash and pewter inlay. The charring is more intense than in most of my other work giving it a deeper darker texture. This piece is intended to be outside and the charring also acts to preserve the wood from the elements.
This large piece (50kg, 120x28x27cm) is a radical transformation of a curved ash branch. Stripped back to the bare wood I have used a combination of bleaching, charring and pewter inlay to gtransform the branch into a highly stylised piece that is still - very much - a natural piece of wood.
Heartwood #5, #6 & #7 Exploring transformation of the natural wood form using charred willow with cast pewter inlay, these pieces form a tryptich but can also be viewed as individual works. I have used them as a moquette with a view to creating a much larger "statement" piece of work in the future - please feel free to contact me regarding any of these options. POA
