TREE TRUNK BENCH

I ATTENDED A WORKSHOP HELD AT MY UNIVERSITY (LOUGHBOROUGH) IN COLLABORATION WITH THE ARTIST MARIA PASK. THE BRIEF WAS TO DESIGN AND MADE A FUNCTIONAL PIECE OF WORK THAT COULD BE USED WITHIN THE UNIVERSITY, ONLY USING THE WOOD GIVEN TO US.  IN A GROUP OF FOUR, WE DECIDED TO CREATE A BENCH USING A LARGE TREE TRUNK. WE CARVED THREE SEATS INTO THE TRUNK AND THEN SET FIRE TO EITHER END OF IT. THIS BLACKENED THE SIDES OF THE BENCH SO THAT WHEN WE CARVED INTO IT THERE WOULD BE A STRONG CONTRAST BETWEEN THAT AND THE NATURAL WOOD.
