Barn Finials

shangri la farm barn with new finials

690mm tall, these finials were inspired by my love of victorian railway architecture and made for our barn.  I hadn’t used the lathe for a long time so it was quite a challenge to end up with two identical forms.  They were turned from lime wood, primed, painted with Jonathan Avery Sabbathday Blue and stuck on with silicon – no mechanical fixings!  Why do it?  Well they emphasise the structure almost like punctuation!



Drawings, paintings and objects designed and made by Jonathan Avery. Lots to add still.
