About Object Company
Catherine Johnston started Object Company in October 2014.
The concept arose from a desire to learn traditional woodworking skills, and to apply these in a practical and design-led manner.
Each piece of wood is sustainably sourced and has been grown in Scotland. Only trees damaged through disease or storm are utilised in order to protect our natural woodlands.
Longevity, durability, design and sustainability are key focus areas and they will continue to inform and improve the project over time.
Each piece is shaped, carved, sanded and finished by hand. Every item differs from the last allowing creative freedom and a heightened enjoyment of the tools and materials used.
Catherine received a BA (Hons) in Painting from The Edinburgh College of Art in 2010. The process of hand making canvas stretchers was an instigator for an appreciation of wood, and a desire to understand how to work with such a natural, sustainable material successfully. Her training has allowed for a unique approach to woodworking that is displayed through her experimental approach and appreciation for colour, shape and texture.
Future projects will centre around an expansion of knowledge and woodworking skills, experimentation with ceramics and metal, and a step toward making simple furniture pieces.
Object Company is based in Mount Florida Studios in the Southside of Glasgow.
