This commission comprises two large blocks, one made from coal, a nod to mineral rights held by the Cavendish family, and the other from glowing transparent resin, a direct reference to Chatsworth’s mineral collection. Our visitors are at times reticent to take a seat, but these works of art are also works of function. In Tom Price’s words “I wanted to celebrate this blurring of nature, craft and art by combining natural and synthetic materials to create objects that look almost mineral-like, but are in fact entirely fabricated by hand."
