Block Series is a new body of work from Gareth Neal that continues his research into digital crafting. Using classical references, he combines relatively unexplored processes of six axis CNC routing with beams of green oak (which were over a century old) to create ancient, otherworldly artefacts dragged from history into a contemporary world. Traditional Shou Sugi Ban charring gives the carved green oak its colour.
