Eleanor Lakelin describes herself as a ‘maker in wood’. The UK artist manipulates salvaged wood – stitching, scorching, sandblasting, piercing and bleaching the wood to create turned and carved functional and sculptural objects. The results are a satisfying mix of objects that look organic, fossilized or slick. Nice.
“Each piece has a story to tell about how and why it was made and this sense of narrative is underlined by the notes which accompany each bowl or vessel. These not only date the work but also explain the age, type and provenance of the material, its inspiration and the processes it has undergone.”
