Abstract Assembly sculpture - stem
Abstract Assembly began as a project back in 2019, when designer Donna Wilson took a little time off from the hustle and bustle of London to enjoy the open skies and seas of her native Scotland. First shown at SCP in 2020, in the form of chairs and large sculptures, this new development of the project sees the introduction of smaller tabletop size sculptures, some of which feature hand-blown coloured glass elements.
The new pieces merge abstract shapes of wood that are constructed using traditional joinery methods, with hand-blown coloured glass sections. Taking painting as a starting point, the project began as an experiment in composition – seeking unique tensions between forms, colours and materials.
Each piece in the Abstract Assembly series features a unique palette of colours, designed by Donna Wilson. There are three different chair forms, four mirror forms, one bench and ten sculptures to choose from. Each piece is made to order.
