These weather beaten objects have nodules, dents and cracks, but Sam’s work shows how careful combinations of different materials, with different histories, can work in harmony. An old hunting horn is reworked to produce light, instead of sound. Slate, timber, glass, ceramic and inquisitive metal objects offer a deliberate account of industrial history and are reborn with a new function and identity.

A carefully conceived contemporary narrative brings these creations into a life of their own. All electrical items have been wired by a qualified electrician and have been portable appliance tested to meet current standards. Sam’s pieces are built to compliment both residential and commercial spaces.
