Bidding ended. Lot is unsold.
Recycled from a board
that had previously been used as a counter top in a friend’s mobile bar. It was
cracked, badly stained and full of unstable knots that were falling out and
provided a serious challenge to work out how to save the stable parts and turn
it into something beautiful, which is a process that has always fascinated me.
Having cut away and drilled out all the bits that couldn’t be saved, and
allowing what was left to guide the final form, it ended up becoming a support
network of sorts - an exploration into interdependence, during a time
(lockdown) when our connections to each other were thrown into sharp focus.
