In this series of lamps the bark is left on the branch and acts as the key textural element from which to fossilise in metal. The branches must be sourced from a tree surgeon to ensure the wood is fresh and free from decay, allowing the bark to shrink in tune with its branch, creating a hard and durable structure to work from. The bark is then coated in multiple fine layers of epoxy resin and bronze powders in a specialist technique to ensure the detail of the bark is extenuated and not lost whilst ensuring a tactile quality to the finish.
