#Phoenix City

BEIJING, CHINA

For the past fifteen years Alison Crowther has intricately carved furniture and sculpture from huge sections of unseasoned English oak. The forms are simple and organic but richly textured with a surface of hand-carved grooves and lines that echo the natural rhythms of grain within the timber itself. The work continues to evolve as
the wood seasons.

Her work for Phoenix City in Beijing takes inspiration from the form and texture of Lotus leaves. Carved from solid wood the hand-crafted seats provide a beautiful visual contrast to the clean surfaces of the interior design. The seats provide users of Phoenix City a place to pause, sit and rest.
