My workbenches become so beautiful over time, and periodically I need new ones.

For this series of bench off-cuts I laid stencils over freshly painted sheets of wood, and used them as a desk for many months. I’ve slowly started cutting the benches up and peeling back the stencils to reveal the lettering, and make these one-off signs. Elements of the lettering have been painted by hand

  • Each piece is a one-off
  • Created with a combination of stencil-work and freehand painting
  • Iconic fairground font
  • 30 x 120cm
  • 18mm ply
  • Dead flat, UV-protective varnish
  • Mirror-plate fixings attached to the back for wall mounting
  • Indoor only

Please read: All pieces are a one-off piece, and will differ slightly from the one pictured. If ordering on backorder the sign you receive will be the same in size and with the same lettering. But the marks and splatters will be different; this is because they are built-up over months, while I paint other pieces. I have some of these ‘Beauty’ signs nearly finished, please allow 3 weeks from ordering for me to finish and post your sign. 

The exact pieces as shown in the photos are available at Paxton+Glew Gallery, Brighton
