Craft inspired by art

abstract art door

Several years ago a customer commissioned us to make a set of sliding doors inspired by an abstract painting she had seen in The Guardian newspaper one weekend. The painting was a composition of bold fields of colour interrupted by slim horizontal lines cutting through and between them. It brought to mind a kind of abstract landscape. 

We combined native coloured ash and American black walnut to create landscapes of our own. Four doors interact across a space, alternately connected and separate, forming their own images as they slide past each other.
