Wood by Kevin Stamper.
Fumed oak & hand-dyed veneer
24 x 24 x 8 cms
Kevin trained in Design and Furniture Making at Winchester. He set up Kevin Stamper Furniture in 1992 with a workshop based in Wimbledon, South-West London. He is both a designer and a maker of fine furniture and dramatic artworks and has received many plaudits for his dramatic and colourful designs.
His signature style is achieved by painstaking exploration into the processes of pixellation and colour dying veneers. Photographs and water colour sketches are digitized to create the initial designs and then reinterpreted using individual squares of dyed veneer. The squares are precisely cut to match the design and the resulting image aims to capture the mood and emotion of the scene without trying to slavishly reproduce it. By the nature of the process, each piece of furniture or artwork is unique and fully exploits the grain patterns and texture of the wood. All of the work is hand-made to the highest standard using the finest materials by Kevin himself and both traditional and innovative techniques are employed in the production of each piece.
Kevin has successfully shown furniture at many exhibitions including Decorex, House & Garden, Celebration of Craftsmanship, Art In Action, SOFA (Chicago), Classic (Belgium) and Design Shanghai (China). His work has featured in many publications and received several awards from The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. Kevin is also a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
