Eleanor Lakelin

Artist & Maker in Wood

Deptford, London, Greater London


sculptural forms, vessels, sustainable wood


£245 — £5500


Eleanor makes vessels and sculptural forms in wood using a lathe and carving tools - employing traditional and modern processes. The provenance of materials is important and she works sustainably using trees felled in the British Isles. Eleanor peels back bark to reveal the organic chaos that can exist in the material itself or builds up layers of texture through carving and sandblasting. She uses the vessel form and surface pattern to explore the layers and fissures between creation and decay.
