Richard Reeve is currently based in a village just outside Sheffield and it is only in the last few years that he began his pewter adventure. His background has links to agriculture, construction and education. Richard works mostly in pewter, spinning, casting, forming and shaping, sometimes including other materials such as wood and glass in his designs. He tends to create functional pieces such as lamps and vases etc, with inspiration being drawn from industrial and mechanical objects, classic and vintage vehicles, steam engines, railways and architecture.
This free-standing lamp is designed for the interior furnishing sector. Aesthetic combines functionality and luxury influences from vintage car engineering and the structural simplicity of the tin can. Pewter sections are spun on bespoke chucks attached to a central coulomb of oak veneer.
