Having drawn my way across all types of vintage ceramics over the years, I have gradually been expanding my range to include printing on reclaimed textiles, producing my own limited edition 'A to Z' print range and adding my illustrations to used postcards and envelopes. So it seemed a natural progression to experiment with transferring my drawings to a much larger up-cycled "canvas", in this case antique wooden furniture and accessories.

This proved to be a very involved, complex, but fun process. I worked with a master craftsman (who handily lives in the same village) to engrave my illustrations and then add layers of coloured fillers and ceramic inlay for extra texture and depth. Each piece was then carefully sanded many times and finished with oil to a give a wonderfully smooth, rich patina.

Needless to say, I am delighted with how they've turned out. These unique artworks would elegantly grace any wall space (I can advise you on appropriate wall fixings). The drawing on this table top is of a tower block I regularly pass on my train journeys in and out of Waterloo Station. Decidedly decrepit and in need of some TLC, the building has masses of character and I think the juxtaposition of the crumbling urban architecture with the beautifully finished wood works brilliantly.

If you are interested in this item please convo me for further details/images. I appreciate buying an artwork at this price level is not a quick decision and am very happy to discuss any queries you may have.
