About the maker
Phil Cuttance is a London-based designer/maker from New Zealand.
He's interested in methods of making which endow his objects with visual clues as to how they are made. Their complex forms and sharp lines mean it is sometimes assumed they have been made using CAD software, CNC machining, or 3D printing, but closer inspection reveals that they are all handmade. Often tiny imperfections, a result of the processes by which they are made, give this away.
