I came across the work of Lola Lely and her beautiful Potluck Stools while looking around the Wonder Room at Selfridges. This year Selfridges is exhibiting a collection of works by Applied Arts graduates from the Royal College of Art. If you get a chance definately take a look and maybe pickup the one of a kind pieces from Graduates from one of the most influential postgraduate universities of art and design. Pretty amazing opportunity, with work on show from the talented Lola Lely. Also on display are works by Anton Alvarez & Livvy Fink to name a few.
Lely's Potluck Stools are beautifully coloured, turned on a very large lathe they are made from solid timber that Lely carefully selects for its strength and fine even grain. Once the stool bases are formed she works in a similar way to a painter, using the stools as three-dimensional canvases. The final result is a unique handcrafted object that combines form with function.
