A long thin metal rod, with an oval loop at one end and a metal circle at the other, balances in perfect equilibrium upon a small, four-footed base. The artist creates an almost impossible spectacle in balancing such a seemingly weighty rod upon such a petite base.
About the Artist
SASA Works is the vision of artist, architect, designer and master craftsman Craig Bamford. Raised in Kenya, Bamford was here significantly influenced by the wild landscape and a notable focus on the handmade - informing his founding philosophies and motivating him to pursue studies in metalwork, carpentry and architecture. Drawing on these disciplines, Bamford explores the poetics of space with a strong emphasis on writing, drawing and painting as part of his process. Working alongside a small team of artisans, Bamford creates collections and spaces with a unique sense of style, formed through a relationship to materials that are locally sourced, reclaimed and reimagined to illuminate their own unique story.
