I have been very lucky to have been involved with a few various out of the norm commissions & projects. So I thought I would post a page sharing the work. Unfortunately some commissions I am unable to post due to client privacy, but the ones I have shown the clients have kindly given me permission.
Hope you enjoy seeing the various projects and the talents of other people.
Michele Benigna - AYMARA - 2014-2016
Michele a talented London based visual effects artist and filmmaker approached me, enquiring about borrowing a porcelain crumpled vase to use in a personal project he was creating, a short film shot completely in infra-red. "My short film is a very simple, clean and beautifully told story, suspended in space and time. I would define it a “Period Sci-Fi” feature."
Michele also used some of the crystalline tea light shells. Below is a stunning still from the film. Click on the link to AYMARAs' website http://www.aymarafilm.com/reel - to see the teaser for the film. It is truly stunning and I am so looking forward to seeing the film in its entirety in October.
David Collins Studio - Nobu London Berkeley St. - 2016
Early spring this year, David Collins Studio asked me to be involved in a section of their refurbishment project of the restaurant area of Nobu Berkeley St. The concept was to create two flowing Japanese inspired wall layouts using the tea light shells in a different way. The shells were formed in a more organic form than usual & they were placed in random clusters on the wall panels. Using a combined crystaline glaze to the interior of the shells we worked with the overall colour scheme. Along with the wall pieces, I made table centres, in which a smaller shell sits inside a slightly larger. The light reflects & bounces off the glossy glaze.
You can see the installation process & closer details of the wall panels and table centers on the link below - http://www.davidcollins.com/films/nobu-berkeley-st
MiH Jeans - 2013 - Bodycon Jean Launch
The lovely people in MiH Jeans London got in touch with me, they were having an exclusive dinner event to launch their new revolutionary Bodycon Jeans which was attended by the Fashion Editors from major UK fashion publications including Vogue, Elle, Grazia and Harper's Bazaar, as well as key influential fashion industry figures.
The dinner was based in their studio in London and they used approximately 80 porcelain tea light shells running along the table.
MiH -"We had our event last night it was a huge success, everyone commented on the candles especially, they really made the table and space look amazing. I have attached images of the event, I thought you might like to see"
Bespoke hanging Light Shades inspired by Primary Coloured Tea light Shells - 2011
Back in 2011 a client approached me to see if I could make light shades based on the primary coloured tea light shell I make. Always up for a challenge & keen to experiment & learn, I did some testing & came up with the pieces shown in the images below.
