Second first of the day

Charles Cowling

 

Andy Clarke and his partner, artist Holly Bridgestock-Perris, have sold their first, innovative Curve coffin. Andy’s new concept was inspired by a “desire was to make a softer curved product, that moved away from the angular harshness of the traditional shape that’s been with us for hundreds of years, and yet retain the traditional robustness of timber in its manufacture.”

Inevitably, the story behind their first sale is a sad one. The coffin is for a baby. The family are arranging everything themselves. 

Andy tells me that he has refined the Curve coffin since we featured him on the blog back in April, and he’s very pleased with the way it looks now. 

The coffins come in plain or painted. The children’s coffin, the Bambini, is the one with the rope handles at either end.

You can find Andy and Holly’s website here.

Should think that shouldering is out of the question…. but, quirky, different and if it floats your boat, why not indeed.

Beautiful, but perhaps a little too reminiscent of a bread bin? (Sorry, but it’s only my opinion)
