Alison Crowther is both a sculptor and a furniture maker; her preferred medium is green oak, which she always tries to source from sustainable woodland.
Kidney I is carved in direct relation to the medullary rays of the wood, the carving following them from 'top' to 'bottom' of the form.
Kidney II is carved in direct relation to the annual rings on the wood, the rippling surface and carving marks following their concentric 'rings' around the forms. These are gentle forms, as soft and apparently malleable as kidney would be.
