Christopher Pike
My working practice encompasses sculpture, lighting and functional architectural installations. I work with natural materials predominately using locally sourced timber. Delicate coppiced wood, tactile Douglas Fir and natural earthen plasters are big influences within the practice. My sculptures are intended to be the focal point within a garden vista, a tactile feature within a considered design, or function as mindful spaces. I am highly influenced by natural pattern and architectural form. In particular; the lines and shapes formed by contours, man-made structures and our interpretation and manipulation of the world around, through maps and architecture. He finds inspiration in both natural and human patterns - the shapes left by flowing water or tides, the organic riven form produced by years of natural wind blasting sand on rocks, growth rings in timber, the contours we use to describe land shapes on our maps and the geometric forms found in architecture. These patterns all tell a story of the material's interaction with its surroundings and the influence of natural processes or man's imposition upon our environment. They are interpreted in a way that allows us to take time and reflect upon the environment around us, and see the beauty in the materials and abstracted form.
