Raw Craft: fine thinking in contemporary furniture
Raw Craft : fine thinking in contemporary furniture
Launching at COLLECT 2012, Raw Craft captures a contemporary craft movement, presenting works characterised by a deliberate transparency of technique, materiality and process, evident in their look and feel.
Visit the Raw Craft website for more information.
Focussing on furniture, the work displayed reveals a subtle originality in the way that skills and resources are employed, imbuing the furniture with a simplicity yet high quality. For the makers featured, explicit making skills and materials are the central means for exploring ideas.
Curated by the Crafts Council with Michael Marriott, designer, and Brent Dzekciorius, of Phillips de Pury as curatorial advisors to Raw Craft, the exhibition presents one-offs, limited editions and prototypes from makers including Peter Marigold, Oscar Narud and Fabien Capello.
