contemporary craft fair update

thankyou to everyone that visited us at this years Contemporary Craft Fair at Bovey Tracey. despite the awful weather on the sunday, we still had a good show and it was nice to catch up with you all.
no pictures of our stand this year unfortunately ..... we left it until last thing on sunday to take some photographs and realised we'd left the battery for our camera at home.

so we thought we'd share a photograph we took of this lovely little pot that we bought at the show by maker Lucianna Gallucci. Lucianna's work and her stand at the show looked beautiful - her website will be online soon.
as always, there was lots of beautiful work at the show - we'll do a little collection of our favourites next week.

new work - groupies

our latest work is called groupies, a collection of small tables combining raw materials: steel + brass + old oak.

© pachadesign

our concept behind groupies started with little pieces of reclaimed oak that we had been saving - too precious to not be made into something beautiful like these little tables.
always passionate about the imperfections in the materials we use, we felt that with groupies they should be left as raw as possible.
the oak is left natural and the metal bases show the welds and the colour change that happens durning the heating process. as a contrast to the thick gnarly old oak tops of most of the groupies, one table has a thin polished brass top.
