Artist note: My ‘Pagoda Box’ designs have been a signature style of mine since 1987.

About the artist: Ray has been a full time turner since 1973. His work is in collections world wide, including the V & A, Fitzwilliam, Manchester & Birmingham Museums UK. In the USA, Detroit & Minneapolis Institutes of Art. Also museums in Honolulu, Germany & Malaysia hold his work. He has traveled widely and been honoured by a number of organizations. His work is about purity of form. He applies the minimalist approach in an ongoing quest to produce objects of beauty and elegant simplicity. Ray has always had empathy with the late Professor David Pye’s statement that “The difference between the thing that sings and the thing which is for ever silent is very slight indeed”.
