Feature article on the work of Williams and Cleal Students for the Somerset Guild of Craftsman Furniture Prize 2016.
(Furniture and Cabinetmaking Magazine).
We are incredibly pleased that the December issue of Furniture and Cabinetmaking includes a full spread feature article on the beautiful furniture, and award winning entries created by our students for The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen Furniture Prize 2016!
Damien Robinson's Writing Desk and Chair and Ali Buchan's Torii Gate Console Table shared joint second prize in the awards.
Ali's table design is based on the famous Torii Gate at the Itsukushima Shrine in Hiroshima, Japan.
Damien's Writing table was made for his father-in-law. The piece is made out of solid American black walnut, selected for its beautiful crown and mostly straight grain patterning.
Our student Tim Hagon's Pippy Oak table also gained recognition in the prize and was 'highly commended' by the judges, and fellow student, Andrew Wood also exhibited his Drinks Chest in brown oak.
Our congratulations to all the students that entered their work and well done to all!
