Turning the page

The Craft Centre & Design Gallery

‘Turning the Page’ is a stunning collection of turned wooden vessels exploring the work of Kylie Coles and Peter Archer. Their unique collections demonstrate how diverse wood can be as a material and each produces remarkable contemporary objects for modern living.
Peter Archer makes one-off pieces in temperate hardwoods. His vessels and bowls are stained, carved and finely finished using oil and wax. Kylie Coles works with recycled magazines, layering them onto wood and turning them on the lathe. The contour effect created reveals intriguing glimpses of broken and hidden text and pictures. “As a craftsperson I reveal the qualities of my chosen materials through the woodturning process, paying close attention to the fine balance between artistic control and serendipity” Kylie Coles.
