Nic’s second range of furniture; Cleavage, explores the process of splitting wood (cleaving), which originates from producing lengths of wood, quickly and easily, without the use of machinery. Its use is commonly restrictive due to the timbers' coarse and un-even texture, however once processed to a high finish, in a range of different materials, the coarseness is lost and the detail extenuated: thus bringing new value and character to mostly reclaimed pine.

 

"The cleft elements are in fact a fairer representation of the structure of trees, presenting us with the veins and muscles of these towering plants"
