These two hand drilled and stitched pieces of furniture were created by Ella for her stand at Origin (London 2011). She wanted to experiment with stitching onto a product rather than simply a found surface. She purchased the storage stool from a recycling project in Brighton and found the coffee table on the street near to where she lived. Both pieces of furniture had seen much better days.
Drilling and stitching on this scale was extremely time consuming, with both pieces turning out to be a real labour of love!
