Timid Elk is a Wakefield based designer/maker. Originally trained in ceramics but found more joy in creating the paper test pieces.
As a result, primarily works in paper
Currently exploring the theme of repetition in the curious commodities collection.
Repetition (noun) – occur again in the same way or form
The potential that repetition can bestow on an item is fascinating; the most rudimentary of objects can evolve into something grandiose, something which far exceeds its previous status. It transforms the insignificant and overlooked.
Whilst each piece created is unique an intermittent sense of familiarity is apparent throughout the collection.
