CRAFTS STUDY CENTRE, UNIVERSITY FOR THE CREATIVE ARTS, FALKNER RD, FARNHAM
3 JUNE - 19 JULY 2014
A collection of work by David Pye is central to this exhibition which looks at the way present day makers have carved wood as part of their practice, creating functional as well as sculptural objects.
The Crafts Study Centre holds important collections of wooden bowls and platters by David Pye, the celebrated Professor of Furniture Design at the Royal College of Art 1964-74. These works are presented at the heart of an exhibition which looks at the way that a group of makers have carved wood as part of their practice in objects that are functional as well as sculptural.
Features works by Eleanor Lakelin, Keith Rand, Malcolm Martin and Gaynor Dowling, Matthew Burt and Nick Barberton which have been created using both hand tools and computer-aided techniques to explore what Pye famously called the 'workmanship of risk and the workmanship of certainty'.< Return to exhibition list
