Caryn Moberly is a British furniture designer whose designs are recognised for their originality and fun. Many of her designs are inspired by natural shapes.
|Pippy Oak River Mirror. Size 1.3m x 0.70m|
Although most of Caryn's designs use burred elm, the example above is of pippy oak. Here is how Caryn describes her mirrors. “I love my river mirror design because it has all the elements of a real river valley. The shape of the banks is created by the effect of natural elements on the tree, the location of the tree and its history. The knotty burrs represent rock formations. Even the annual rings in the wood represent contour lines on a map.
I like the way they manage to combine a very modern rectangular shape with a wild natural form.
This is a particular favourite of mine from Caryn's collection for the green tinge in the grain.
She has exhibited at a number of prestigious shows and has been selected to exhibit with the British European Design Group. Caryn has an MA in Furniture Design and Technology at Buckinghamshire New University.
