Event description

Description

Writer and author Helen Chislett joins Joanna Bibby, co-founder of lighting and furniture studio Ochre, and master gilder Katherine Knight in a conversation exploring the art of gesso, bole and gold leaf.

Ochre designs furniture, lighting and accessories for the interior, creating water gilded table lamps as their very first pieces. Both co-founders Joanna Bibby and Harriet Maxwell MacDonald were trained in gilding at art school, and the technique is still incorporated into their products today – for example, the Surya light, with its slither of 22-carat gold on the wood-turned greek oak shade, inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi.
