Lee Borthwick is a London based artist that creates custom-made and site-specific natural artworks for residential, commercial and exterior spaces. Some of them might resemble installation art in your home.
She is able to seamlessly combine manmade mirrors with wooden stumps found in nature.
It is Lee’s distinctive approach of combining pieces of tree and mirror that led to the creation of her signature “Mirror Tapestries” and the establishing of her studio in 2009. Alongside meticulously fabricated artworks and outdoor installations the studio has become known for the Grain and Hairy boards, an evolving collection of tactile tableware. Ethically sourced materials and a view to encapsulating a sense of peace and serenity are the principles that underpin everything that the studio produces.
“Each piece of wood I collect has a narrative and a past, each piece of work therefor rendered unique. Through an array of sustainable and local sourcing techniques and, well, having developed a reputation as a bit of a log lady…. I have a wonderful selection of branches and logs in the workshop… ” – says Lee
