‘A Listener’, price on request, by Jie Wu, from Gallery FumiRosewood and resin make elegant additions to a gift listThe work of Chinese-born, London-based artist Jie Wu elegantly marries East and West, the natural and the manmade. Having studied textile design at Chelsea College of Arts and the RCA, Wu turned her attention to recycled rosewood and translucent resin, which she calls ‘an inclusive material that can bring a new life to wood’. Combining the two, Wu created a collection of furniture and vessels on the theme of silence earlier this year, which includes this evocatively hued centrepiece, inspired by Chinese bronzeware from the Warring States period. It would make a showstopper of an addition to your wedding table, or, considering its title ‘A Listener’, an apt gift to symbolise your dedication to your spouse-to-be.
