FOCUS ON WOOD 1-8 NOVEMBER

Saturday 6 November
10am - 4pm
Glowood

  

Glowood has a preference for finding wood that's been long forgotten. Be it languishing in a garden shed, part of a piece of unrepairable furniture or foraged from a hedgerow. They take it and breathe new life into it.

They love the natural imperfections of wood. As it dries and responds to its environment the colour changes and the form shifts. This is nature’s response to their work. If it cracks, so be it, it was meant to happen. they embrace it.

The workshop is next to their house which looks out across the sea. Standing at the door facing North there is no land mass between them and the Arctic Ocean. The ever evolving skies and tonal changes in the sea are a constant source of inspiration.
