The Bodging Project

‘Before, During, After’ . 27 March – 2 June 2013 . www.harleygallery.co.uk


An exhibition of chairs made by the two bodging groups from 2010 and 2012. This includes a piece made before the experience – Infinity which contrasts well as it required almost zero tolerance in the making in order for the tapered mitres to be perfect, and then Bird Bender as my ‘after’ piece which was a result of me experimenting with steam bending on my own. I’m using sweet chestnut for the bending, which is excellent for outdoor use and then off-cuts for the rest. If anyone’s interested please get in touch, at the moment I’m not sure if I can make this a viable batch product but if the interest is there it will motivate me to work on it!

The exhibition is expected to tour, you can find out more about Bodging Milano and other related projects here: www.bodgingmilano.co.uk
