The design is an hommage to the French ceramist, Roger Capron (b. 1922) who attained international acclaim in the mid-fifties for his unique and graphic ceramic art. His frequent motifs of the sun emblem bring a sense of wellbeing and warmth. He was a pioneer of the “forms libres” movement in the 1940’s.
Using the old craft of woodturning, the oiled solid walnut blocks undulate in form evoking a sense of play with the warm caramel and chocolate colours and lighthearted circular pattern. I want people to connect with the form and texture of the door. To run their fingers along the oil sheened surface; to feel that warmth of Roger’s envisioned sun pattern.
Made in solid Black American walnut, the design is available as an Interior Door, Exterior Door, Sliding Door and Interior Wall Paneling.
