Chris Scotland is a member of the Scottish Furniture Makers’ Association, a diverse British group of bespoke furniture makers. They aim to promote the finest craftsmanship and develop a public awareness of contemporary furniture design in Scotland.
Presented as a component of Oak and Iron (www.theoshields.com/oak-and-iron), ‘Chris Scotland – Woodworker’ will be displayed as part of a touring exhibition across Scotland. The aim of Oak and Iron is to focus attention on the important relationship between industrial trades and contemporary art in Scotland. Project curator and sculptor Theo Shields has brought together local tradesmen, Fraser Waugh and Chris Scotland to produce a series of sculptures made from Scottish oak and recycled iron to exhibit with accompanying video documentaries produced by Douglas Caldow (www.douglascaldow.co.uk) which trace the legacy of the key local craftsmen.
