“What Light There Was” Collection, New England 2013
The “What Light There Was” Collection, New England 2013, is inspired by two years I have spent in Providence RI. Having arrived from the Caribbean, I realised that light and space are precious wherever there is a long winter. I have designed and made three tables, a chair and a door which celebrate light, air, movement, gesture and the space between things. Each was crafted from locally sourced, sustainable materials, with the use of an innovative combination of the most modern computer assisted fabrication and exceptional hand skills.
