BEDSIDE TABLE ~ English Walnut ~ William Jay

WILLIAM JAY furniture

Historically evocative and indulgently theatrical, antique woods are fused with new to add instant patina and convey timelessness. With a background in set design Will endeavours to add a refreshingly alternative dimension to a traditional craft.

'I aim to create sculptural, unusual and evocative furniture with an emphasis on the artistic as opposed to the craft side of design and production. Much of my work is “upcycled”, from existing antique pieces, or made of reclaimed hardwoods and salvaged materials using mainly traditional methods. Drawing on a background in Theatre Design, I infuse each piece with an aspect of the historical and dramatic. My work has been described as; fantastical, surreal, twisted and humorous and I'm happy to use any of these as reasons for their creation. Most of my pieces are one–offs but I am currently working on a range of hand made reproduction vintage pieces, which can be tailored to suit a particular situation. I am based at a rural workshop in Sussex'.

Pieces are generally made to order, and most can be sized to suit a particular space. Please feel free to discuss your requirements.
