'Bough House' by Rob Heard has Arrived!A 'Bough House' by Rob Heard has just arrived and is now on display in our window!
British Artist Rob Heard's wooden 'Bough House' sculptures each take several months to construct. The creative process is an organic one: inspiration is taken from a bough of wood cut from local trees. The form of the 'House' follows the shape and twists of the wood, informing the design. With no limitation on the imagination, the 'Bough Houses' bring out an inner child-like quality in the viewer: the daring to dream.
Each piece is unique and finished with meticulous craftsmanship that will withstand the test of time. The artist envisages his works as interactive - they are to be played with, not just admired from a distance.

Rebecca Louise Law InstallationsTo complement the current exhibition of photographs by Rachel Levy, Stephanie Hoppen Gallery has specially commissioned two pieces by renowned London floral artist, Rebecca Louise Law.
A background in both fine art and professional floristry inform her practise of combining flowers and natural materials to create beautifully unique floral installations. For this exhibition, Rebecca has sourced antique Victorian wooden chairs, which she has filled with fresh flowers, seamlessly integrating man-made and natural materials. Over time the blooms fade and languish organically, revealing the unconventional beauty of faded grandeur captured in Levy's photographs.
