SCULPTURES & ARTWORKS

The work of partners Barnaby Ash and Dru Plumb is a harmonious blend of ancient inspiration and contemporary innovation. By referencing archaeological forms and reimagining traditional craft techniques, they create visually captivating pieces that pay homage to the past while pushing the boundaries of their craft. 

INTRODUCING THE NOVUS COLLECTION

Working with a single lightning-struck oak from Heathfield, Sussex, for their curation, Novus is a celebration of historical inspirations reinvented in a modern and playful visual language. They choose to highlight natural imperfections, working collaboratively with their chosen material and embracing the variety of character it imbues on the finished vessels. These works are of considerable scale compared to their traditional practice and feature complex new carved handles and stitch-work alongside.

PREVIEW: OUSE VESSEL IN LEATHERED OAK

Small handled vessel made from lightning-struck English Oak sourced from Heathfield, Sussex. Patinated with iron oxide & lime wash, mended with a 1.5mm dark brown Japanese waxed cotton stitching and sealed with a Hassui ceramic finish.
