Stretched. An installation by Rebecca Asquith

25 March 2014 - 26 April 2014

In this new body of work, Rebecca Asquith explores craft techniques not traditionally associated with furniture making and applies them to a collection of furniture pieces. She's particularly interested in the properties and processes associated with leather, which is traditionally used in furniture as a soft cushioning material. Once boiled in water, however, leather can harden into an incredibly rigid material. Rebecca experiments with this boiling process to manipulate the shapes leather can form, embracing its unpredictable and organic nature.
