John Plater FSDC, woodturner, has been portrayed in two works by artist, Jeremy Bear. People and their lives are at the heart of Jeremy Bear’s work. His creative process starts when his attention is caught by the creative spirit of others. It may be people he knows well, purposefully working in their chosen media, as with the present series of crafts people, which will feature in the exhibition Jeremy Bear – The Creative Spirit at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne from 7 to 23 July this year.
Most of John Plater’s work is based on natural edged hollowed forms made from timber in the round. Simple shapes are used to allow the grain to feature. Bark, sapwood, cracks and voids in the timber are often incorporated into a piece. John will be bringing his work to MADE LONDON – Canary Wharf during week 1 (17 – 20 March).
