Craig Bamford 'Soul Canoe'


Dimensions: H 20cm x W 89cm

Materials: Brass, steel and an eagle feather

Method: Handcrafted

Care: Dust lightly using a natural cloth, being careful on the more delicate parts



'Soul Canoe' is a piece that moves between worlds. A brass vessel is held on an axis with an eagle feather - to move in the breeze. As if the vessel is being transported, to another realm. Exploring the transient nature of our existence - and the shift between states of being. Everything moves on the winds of change and in so doing we open to new experiences.

In many mythologies this symbol of the boat or the ship exists representing the carrying of the soul to the after life.


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.
