The Herringbone Side Table is one of the pieces I showed as part of the 'Future Heritage' show, Curated by Corinne Julius, in September at 'Decorex' in London.

The Herringbone side tbale is cast entirely by hand in my London studio, and demonstrates my ability to make larger custom pieces, with large scope in respect to the scale, form, function, colour and finish of the piece.

The mould from which the piece is cast is also made by hand. I score and fold a sheet of plastic and fold it into a complex folded 3D landscape. This flat form is then then folded into the 3D form of the vase and then cast into. The process enables me to make a unique piece each time.

The Herringbone side table is often assumed to be made by CNC routing, but the Herringbone pieces are cast completely by hand in my London studio, using my unique casting process. I am interesting in creating objects whose form, often detailed and visually complex, belies the hand-made, lo-fi processes by which they are created. On closer inspection the objects often reveal small imperfections, which are a result of the process and communicate the hand-made nature of the piece.
