Acies from Latin means edge, sharpness, glance as well as attention of one’s sight, hearing or other senses towards an object. 
My intent was to explore a bond of the opposites, monolithic and intricate, voluminous and sharp, the relationship between outline and shape as well light and  form.

 The Jade collection of furniture and objects, has been developed between my studio in London and time spent in Florence. This group is a result of my ongoing exploration of abstract form, as well as a reflection of my experience of Florentine architecture; the voluminous roughly carved stone facades, the fine lines and sharp returns of vaulted ceilings, lustre smooth surfaces of polished stone sculptures as well as time-based effects of erosion and decay of the historical city.
