Ray Winder RMS

sculpture by Ray Winder
Has been comissioned by The American Hardwood Export Council to create a 1:20th scale model of a structure called 'Sclera' originally designed by leading Architect Sir David Adjaye OBE and made back in 2008 for The London Design Festival.
 
An exhibition called 'Making Memory' has just opened at The Design Museum in London  featuring seven of David Adjaye's chosen monumental projects and my model will be on display.

Ray has worked with The American Hardwood Export Council on many projects over the years, the 'Sclera' pavilion was a joint project with them and David Adjaye Associates. The original structure was made from laminated American Tulipwood and was around 12 metres long, my model at 1:20 scale is 600mm long and required hundreds and hundreds of precisely machined pieces of Tulipwood all cut to exact sizes and lengths before gluing precisely in place and took two months to complete.

Thank you!

As always, our exhibition would not be possible without a dedicated group of members who make our show possible. 

Many hours are spent organizing, selecting, hanging, photographing and packing works. 

If you are a member and would like to help, please contact Claire Hucker for further information.

CALL FOR ARCHIVE MATERIAL

Like many venerable art societies, the RMS was proud of its historical archives; however, during World War II their London headquarters were bombed resulting in the loss of these records.

For some years the organisation has been trying to gather together a complete run of the Society's annual exhibition catalogues but we still need the following years: 1914-1920, 1922-1924, 1927, 1940-1943, 1945, 1948 and 1950.

The Society would be delighted to hear from anybody who has copies of these missing catalogues - even photocopies would be adequate for archive purposes.

If anybody can help please contact the RMS Archivist, Anthony Lester - lesterartcritic@gmail.com
