I am very happy to be able to say that I have won the Wesley-Barrell Craft Award furniture category for my recent dressing-stand. The award is for established professional makers, criteria included ‘the use of traditional craft skills utilised in an innovative and contemporary way to create beautiful and hand-crafted one-off pieces’.
Wesley-Barrell will be publishing information about the awards in a few days time and I will post a link to the press-release here.
The piece is shown here and is intended as contemporary response to a recently neglected type of domestic furniture, the dressing table. Made from pearwood, maple, cedar and walnut, it’s compact size and open-frame base provides a place for jewellery, make-up and accessories.
