Peter Marigold's fine art training, combined with a series of jobs in scenographic design and production has led to a pluralistic and resourceful approach to furniture design. His 'Wooden' forms are made by using a single piece of wood as the mould that is pasted with hot wax in order to extract an impression of its grain and texture. The wood is then repositioned, and the process repeated so as to build up the form intuitively, creating a form that is both moulded and unique. The wax form is cast into either plaster or metal, combining it into a singular material through one action, resulting in an amalgam of moments and pieces that are highly animated and not 'wooden' at all.
