The Almost Perfect Collection. 2/3.
It's basically about a beautiful set of bathroom furniture where everything seems well designed but a bad decision during its placement has changed the focus and made everything weird. 
Elegant finishes and smooth shapes are not the protagonist anymore, now something more difficult to explain is taking our attention: it's about feelings, it's about to walk over the conceptual line between public and private. It’s mainly about discomfort.

Biggest and favourite to date. Started and finished today. I’m still getting some overspill of glue when attaching the bristle but I’m working on it. This one made from cherry with coco fibre bristle. It’s been hand carved and sanded, but not yet oiled. My business will be 5 this year, and I am looking at new ways to work, and push myself. I still want to write a book, but my brain is so muddled and I don’t think anyone would read it. I’d like to do a solo show, or pop up. I’d like to run another carve with barn and I’d like to start earning more! I need to start really pushing forward ~ or consider a change in path 🌿

This piece is now hanging in my kitchen! It was a piece I made just for me. Bring creative outside of my work hours are so important to me. Keeping room for experimenting and exploring within my creativity with no deadline or client approval. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Mixing the clays for the color transitions on these gradient pieces takes ages but I kinda forget that when I see the final product—i just want to go make more! These (and some planter versions) are among the work I’ll have with me at @westelmportland this Saturday, Feb 23! I’ll be there 12-4pm, along with @woman.and.wolf, I’d love to see you there!

The studio looks suspiciously calm here, it was taken a few weeks ago. I’m downing tools today ( after making 4 spatulas) to set up for the event of the year I’ve heard?
It’s been a real pleasure to start something new, to work with @barnthespoon and @morakniv , to make way more products than I could possibly need and to be in contact with so many brilliant makers. 
So many of you have signed up to come and that’s so scary but also so amazing because I didn’t think anyone would want to come! 
Please say hi if you are coming down to @carve.london. I will be @benkandbo all weekend and other than a few workshops and a small talk I will be available to answer any questions that come my way! 
See you there? 🌿

I’ve been working with some of the offcuts that I was kindly given. Pictured are spalted hornbeam and various burr slices that I am yet to identify! The burrs are particularly hard but I’ve managed to work them into some beautiful brush handles. This picture doesn’t do them justice, the natural patterns produced are incredible! I will do an update tomorrow evening with all the new items I’ve been working on so let me know if there is anything else you think I should make! 🌿

I really must finish my tax return today but I’ve been distracted making new things. Feeling on a nice creative roll since the start of the year and I don’t want to ruin it. I promised myself I would get back to my receipts after I finished these few brushes.  Can’t wait to scale up, get better at making them and making new shapes. 🌿☕️
