Wood designer Eleneanor Lakelin creates various vessels in a broad range of organic forms. “I peel back bark to reveal the organic chaos that can exist in the material itself and build up layers of texture through carving and sandblasting. I use the vessel form and surface pattern to explore the layers and fissures between creation and decay and the erosion of nature.”, says Lakelin.

Lakelin’s work is exhibited internationally and included in prestigious museums and private collections. She is the recipient of notable awards and commendations including a QEST Scholarship 2018, British Wood Award 2017, The Cockpit Arts / Worshipful Company of Turners Award 2011 and got a nomination for Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon Prize 2014 . She lives and works in London and is represented by Sarah Myerscough Gallery.
