Nick was inspired by the way Rachel Whiteread casts objects in her work so ended up creating a jewellery cabinet made out of red oak and cast Jesmonite. He created the textured finish on each piece of Jesmonite by scrubbing each piece of red oak with a wire brush to remove the softer grain and creating a plaster cast for each one. The piece features two concealed drawers with dovetail joints, a secret compartment, a mirror, in-built lighting and mint-green suede lining.
“Red oak was an Interesting material to use that has a nice colour and takes finishes well. It’s all about a palette of materials when you are a maker and it’s good to try new things.”
