We are pleased to say that the Zaha Hadid and Gareth Neal vessels are already a huge success! designboom has featured them in its March edition in the ‘design’ section, see link below. These wooden vessels are part of a project presented by the American hardwood export council and Benchmark Furniture, originally exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of ‘The Wish List’ during the London Design Festival 2014. Hidden within the fluid, futuristic computer modelled trails of these vessels, are traditionally hand thrown pots, juxtaposing craftsmanship and new technologies in woodwork.

They will be exclusively represented by Sarah Myerscough Gallery at COLLECT 2015 in May hosted at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

We are pleased to announce that the Philadelphia Museum of Art has acquired Big Bend, a major piece from Malcolm Martin & Gaynor Dowling’s recent series of works created during a fellowship residency at The Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia in 2013. The piece is to join the prestigious museum’s European Decorative Arts and Sculpture collection in 2014.

Big Bend was created using a radical new bending and stitching technique on a single sheet of carved veneered board to form a vessel. New work from Martin & Dowling will be featured in Sarah Myerscough Gallery’s presentation at this year’s COLLECT fair, held at the Saatchi Gallery from 9-12 May, 2014.

Congratulations to the artists on their success!
