Laurence Brand – Guest Exhibitor in the Guild at 51

28 July to 13 September

‘I strive to create elegant, refined objects for the home, made primarily from fine native hard woods. My work aims to celebrate honest and minimal design, elevate beautiful materials, and bring to light the rich process of making. The relationship between wood and other materials excites me: elegant and harmonious combinations such as rich English walnut and sumptuous burgundy pig suede, or ebonised young ash paired with warm, radiant brass provide endless inspiration. In recent work I present a dialogue between the graceful, delicate nature of a small vessel and a gritty industrial aesthetic.’
