Anthony Dain

A keen interest in how form, pattern and texture relate to one another and a fascination with the way the components of a whole fit together lie at the heart of my practice. By its very definition furniture is designed to serve a function, I hope my work goes beyond its basic role fulfilment and prompts the user to stop and look and perhaps question ‘how has he done that?’ or ‘why is this detail here?’

I craft contemporary furniture to commission and for exhibition from a workshop within the Sylva Woodland Foundation using native and locally sourced timbers.

I take inspiration from a diverse range of practices and processes found in traditional British furniture making, architectural joinery and the built environment and more recently taking on board elements of traditional Japanese joinery.
