Biography

Charles Trevelyan was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1974, but has lived and worked in London since 2000. After studying material engineering and three-dimensional design, he formed Studio Trevelyan, in which he creates limited-edition design and furniture pieces.

Trevelyan uses a variety of materials, such as steel, timber, gauze, and marble powder, and often draws on the patination technique in which chemicals are painted onto the surface of bronze with heat, applied using a blowtorch. Variants of the chemical combination and the heat applied can completely change the appearance of the bronze.

As a result, Charles Trevelyan’s work shows the full range of possibilities of this process with their spectrum of colours and textures. His chosen techniques give his pieces a sort of muted wildness. His series of side tables and human sizes lamps, boast bold, elongated forms, and expressive lines, influenced by natural characteristics and reminiscent of trees and roots. On closer inspection, each piece has its own unique texture, creating both a functional piece and a unique, artistic experience.

Trevelyan’s work has been exhibited in Trapholt Museum in Denmark and can be found in many private collections. In 2006 his work was featured in the Design Museum in London, and has since been exhibited internationally in Paris, New York, Basel, Miami, Dubai, Milan and Kortrijk.
