Description

A layered scagliola cylinder resembling the sponge, jam, jelly, custard, cream, sprinkles and sherry of Grandmother’s Sunday trifle, on a set of black ebonised conical feet. Brought about by a growing impulse to escape from personal, societal and climatic catastrophe into something nostalgic, comforting and humorous.
Scagliola is the 16th century technique that uses natural materials to create a stone like surface that has traditionally been made to represent marble. Here General Life, having spent some years mastering the traditional scagliola techniques, challenge the possibilities of the medium to create a finish that still feels and looks like marble but which also has the vibrant colors, swirls and layers of their favorite desert, all unified into the form of a stool.

General Life
General Life is an indie product design and production house. General Life looks to bring artistry, beauty and meaning into everyday life - tempered by an outsider’s irreverence. All of General Life’s work originates in the artist’s studio and is made by hand in it’s own workshops and in collaboration with a community of small-scale fabricators in the West Midlands – the traditional heartland of British manufacturing. General Life flows from the creative practice of Ivan Morison and Heather Peak Morison, capturing significant moments in their artistic process and shaping them into products to be shared. Ivan Morison and Heather Peak Morison have worked together as an artist duo since 2003, establishing a significant collaborative practice that transcends the divisions between art, architecture and theatre.  They have produced major works for many British institutions, including Tate Modern; exhibited widely across Europe, North America and Australasia; and represented Wales at the 52nd Venice Biennial. Their work is held in many collections around the world.
