Nicholas Shurey

British architect turned sculptor Nicholas Shurey resides in Copenhagen. His beautifully carved wooden sculptures are designed for small spaces and sit somewhere between furniture and stand-alone objects. His work has a playful functionality, from his Little Lady sculpture in Danish maple, which disassembles to become a table and stool to the Eduardo Chillida-inspired smiley face bowl, hand-carved in walnut.

Nicholas’ work investigates the negative space in the volume of his pieces, exploring single lines and curved forms. The timbre is sourced directly from forest and parks in and around Copenhagen. His latest series of large bowls are rich in texture with abstract facial features lending a touch of humour to the everyday object.
