Blue Pool Gold Edition handmade garden table and chairs
A Golden Wedding anniversary gift based on the Blue Pool design.
The client wanted subtle and discrete elements incorporated to signify the occasion and the recipients.
As with all versions of existing works, it began informed by an existing design then it's individuality emerged as the work progressed. The golden element insinuates itself in the edge of the table in 24 k Smalti glass chunks embedded in the double slate rim. Slaking light throws the gold into relief in a way that doesn't interfere with table surface. The deeply embedded blue roundels and blue Smalti glass rings alternately glow and shimmer according to light levels, and movement casting across the surface. A ceramic plaque with a monogram of the couples initials was created by Sinclair Taylor, and set into one of the chair seats.

    Oh, Helen, most talented person!

    The new website is lovely, the table looks so fine and I just want to order every one of your new designs. My parents have reconfigured their garden to give their Blue Pool Gold Edition the right presence. I am embarrassed that a year has passed and that all my photos of the table haven’t got beyond my memory stick. But you must rest assured that your part in my parents. wedding anniversary has been profound. We love your work. Hope we amy meet one day and then can commission something that can make its way to Canada.

    All good wishes, Helen. We haven’t forgotten what you did to make my parents’ golden wedding anniversary so very special.
