Christine Meyer-Eaglestone creates unique hand-cut marquetry artworks and furniture (screens, mirrors etc). Christine has a fine art background and her designs often play with spatial illusion through vibrant use of colour and bold geometric composition, evolving as she intuitively chooses from a ‘palette’ of conventional and ‘reconstructed’ wood veneers. She makes speculative pieces and occasionally works to commission.

“I believe there is a strong relationship between architecture and music and in Bauhaus II I have attempted to marry visualised musical components with architectural elements. As in music and architecture, structure is central to this design and essential elements are shared by both: balance, rhythm, harmony, discord.”
