Margie Fraser finds a flourishing collection of homewares.
February 22nd, 2010
The Bloom Series is Christina Waterson’s latest collection of furniture and homewares.
The work extends the artist’s investigations into intricately folded geometric planes.
Inspired initially by the beauty of her Danish grandmother’s collections of glass fruit and ceramics, Waterson has channelled their clear, penetrative colours in the delightful ‘fruit pixels’, made of laser cut recycled acrylic.
The plywood ‘Lift’ stool and ‘Tilt’ magazine rack and bowl employ male and female couplings in different configurations.
“I was aware that in changing from the purely sculptural to functional pieces, I still wanted to retain a sense of the fun and funky,” says Waterson.
