South Australian-based Gray Hawk is renowned for his meticulous attention to detail and the great artistry in his bespoke designs. His distinct aesthetic is informed by an Art Deco sensibility that is opulent in form and meticulous in detail. Richly hued timbers, such as Macassar Ebony and Redgum, lend each of his pieces a rich materiality, while the incorporation of glass, stainless steel and bronze adds visual dynamism.
“I spent time with a team of blacksmiths and coachbuilders and learnt the skills of a wheelwright. While preserving the knowledge and art form, this experience now informs my current design and construction methodology.”
Quality of construction, detail, careful consideration and choice of material are Gray’s main concerns to create longlasting furniture and art pieces.
