Intricacies of the natural world
focusing on the Victorian Era is a core theme in Georgina Brett Chinnery's work.
A recent winner of the the prestigious Cockpit Arts / Leathersellers' Award Georgina makes one off sculptural interior objects using traditional techniques of leather working.
Inspired by antiques, Georgina's creations are highly decorative using traditional leather working techniques bringing an element of high relief work and sculpture to the mix. Leather once a living thing has its own story etched on to its surface, a beauty and a strength bringing added value and durability. The finished items have a contemporary look and are bought for their beauty as much as for their functionality.
Georgina's work has been shown in Europe as well as featuring in numerous publications. She has pieces in private collections and has worked with TV and film.
