Charlie Whinney

Posted by James Cartwright,

Anyone who’s ever tried to carve, whittle or sand wood into an object of their own design will tell you that it’s a temperamental beast. Anyone who hasn’t, be advised, it is. Consequently Charlie Whinney’s deft manipulation of vast lengths of untreated timber into stunningly complex geometric forms is as impressive for its technical nous as its aesthetic beauty. What’s more Charlie and his former Sixixis allies invented the steam-bending techniques used to create his works, allowing the timber to be bent in sections rather than as a whole piece. Clever boys.
