We are Sarah and Nigel Wight. We have a shared affinity for working with glass, wood and metal. Our passion for colour and texture, our mix of styles and skills lead to some glorious contemporary collaborations.
Sarah is a designer and maker of beautiful things. She loves to explore pattern, shape, texture and form, taking much inspiration from the natural world. She expresses her sometimes quirky, sometimes slightly eccentric, view of the world in her art work.
Nigel has a talent for seeing the potential in reclaimed objects. His technical background means he can work artistic miracles with wood, metal, glass, leather (and just about anything else you give him!) to create amazing and beautiful stand alone objects. Just occasionally his abstract side has to be reined in (or at least not let loose in the wild!)
Where possible the wood and metal work we use is left over, reclaimed, recycled, salvaged, bought from reclamation yards, old factories, wood recycling projects and anywhere else and anyone else that has something that sparks our interest! We do obtain wood from mills on occasion so that we can have a source of materials, but this is always sustainable and mostly local. It all fits with our personal ethics of reducing waste by re-using resources which have no further use elsewhere.
We do not mass produce our work, preferring to create individual pieces wherever possible. We may produce collections along a theme, but each individual piece explores different aspects of whatever inspired us!
