“Stories Encapsulated: Wood” is exhibition of work by traditional craftsmen and contemporary artisans at Crafts on Peel in Central.
Twenty artists have been involved with the project, which highlights the use of mortise and tenon joints, which date back 7,000 years. “No glue, screws or machines, or expensive materials have been used – we want the audience to appreciate the wisdom and craftsmanship used to make these pieces,” says Penelope Luk, Craft on Peel’s creative director .
“Wood is a gift from nature; it is a tactile, living material,” Luk says. “These objects are not just an extension of a tree’s life but also manifestations of the relationship with the craftsmen who give the objects a soul. This exhibition tells each craftsman’s story and their emotional connection to the objects they have created.”
