FREE HAND BENCH
The free hand bench is created using local brown oak and green ash.
The inspiration for this piece came from walk in a Nutbourne where there is a willow plantation. In the strong wind these trees were whipping round to give the curved shape similar to the ribbons on this bench.
The bench has been created using free hand steam bending; there is no use of a former in the creation of the bench. The wood is allowed to dictate the amount it bends and therefore the shape it forms.
Other materials can be used in the bench: e.g. oak, maple, walnut, yew
