Quirky designs with dry humour, promoting eco-awareness, salvaging the quality and integrity of the past. Playing with the familiar and domestic. Employing skill and ingenuity.
Born from practical experimentation “Andrew Oliver’s “Drunken Table and Crooked Lamp are a smart combination of talent and humour” (www.luxuryculture.com).
I make bold sculptural one-off interior items exploring form and manipulating the structure of salvaged and second hand furniture. My aim is to merge the boundaries of art, design and craft to produce iconic pieces, which may be equally fresh in another 50 years time. Future classics.
Tradition, heritage, culture, and modernity play a major part in informing my work. To look forward you have to look back as well as to the present day.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
