    Caster and ‘Cube’ Condiments

  • Gilded Beech-wood Cross

    1967

    Gilded Beech-wood Cross suspended over the central Altar in Churchill College Chapel, Cambridge and commissioned by The Goldsmiths’ Company. The brief asked for a three-dimensional Cross on account of its being placed at the centre of a square building. I resolved this by contriving a solid Cross in one plane, and a linear outline Cross of textured anodised aluminium in the second plane, at a right-angle to the Gilded Cross.

    The whole construction is suspended on four piano-wires. Commissioned by The Goldsmiths’ Company together with four floor-standing wooden Candlesticks, also for The Chapel.

    Lighting Efficiency Trophy

    1967

    The Trophy: (silver, supporting a silver-gilt and subtlely ovoid form and with a Base of Cumberland Green Slate (engraved by George Lukes).

    Although originally made for The National Saloon Car Racing Championships, a few years later, the above Trophy was re-named by Osram-GEC Ltd. and then served as the Lighting Efficiency Trophy for The Lighting Industries Federation. Simplified, small keepsakes were also presented annually for several years.
