The inquisitive, humorous, and often playful mind of craftsman Derek Pearce has seen him lend his hand to a hugely diverse variety of projects over the decades. His immensely impressive portfolio of achievements include working in theatre (both on and off stage), film, as a musical director, lecturer and teacher. It should therefore come as no surprise that Derek has produced his Furniture Sculptures for a huge number of well recognised individuals and organisations. His impressive list of clientele includes the likes of John Cleese, David Jason, James Dyson, Nick Mason, Nick Faldo, Chicago Zoo and the Scotsman Hotel in Edinburgh. As you can imagine the list goes on and on.
Laden with wit and an indubitable sense of originality, Derek’s work never fails in prompting a large and reflexive smile. In particular, his “water tables” are an utter joy to behold, their glass tops serving to mimic a body of water as beautifully sculpted ducks, hippos, dolphins and otters characteristically (and enjoyably) break through the surface. First conceived of in 1997, these incredible tables have since been sold and exhibited all over the world, having found homes in everywhere from America to Japan, a true testament to the universal appeal of this designers work.
As a collection, Derek’s work can be seen as a series of contemporary and timeless heirlooms. Investment pieces bound to be enjoyed by generations to come.
