Paul Anderson I

The wonderful benches by Paul Anderson have great character looking cobbled together, wonkey and simply beautiful looking like they have time traveled from times of care, handcraft and clever thrift.

"My love of discarded materials have been powerful influences: I use mostly relic oak from defunct barn roofs, boats, gates and fences to make elemental thrones, tables, daybeds and benches which, although they have an ancient, recently unearthed quality about them, work well in contemporary settings. The furniture is rugged, risky, energetic - functional but sculptural. The means of construction is usually very evident – maybe that keeps the work visceral and emphatically un-glib." Paul Anderson 
Thank you
