Drawing inspiration from ancient and archetypal form, their artistic practice translates these historical references into a captivating visual language of their own. Each distinctive vessel hewn from a single section of Oak through the craft of woodturning, the pair collaborate with their material of choice in a way that celebrates the natural beauty of the tree, embracing every aspect of its character within the finished form.

Working with a single section of lightning struck Oak from Heathfield in Sussex for their new works created especially for Eye of The Collector, they have created a series of vessels that celebrate these ancient and historical inspirations. Each vessel a playful yet technically complex contemporary reinvention of these references, crafted to highlight the natural imperfections within the material and featuring the pairings signature stitch-work repair that celebrates the natural imperfections within the ancient Oak that they work.
