    Derek Pearce

    Derek-Pearce

    What Derek is really about is blending skills of MAKING with skills of THINKING and the development of CREATIVE IDEAS – and he firmly believes what Einstein said – ‘Imagination is more important than knowledge!’

    “Einstein was a wise old goat – he even looked like one!” says Derek. “He changed our concept of the universe with some squiggles on a blackboard.”

    Here are a few things some of Derek’s clients have said about him:

    “CREATIVE, EXCITING, INSPIRING, OFTEN HUMOROUS FURNITURE/SCULPTURE – made by an ARTIST and MASTER CRAFTSMAN”
    -
 John Cleese

    “A rare combination of CREATIVITY and CRAFTSMANSHIP”

    – Michel Roux

    “THIS MAN IS A GENIUS”

    – Stephen Daldry CBE (Creative Director 2012 Olympics)

    “In a world of anonymous, mass produced commodities, the vision, wit and craftsmanship of Derek Pearce’s singular works provides welcome relief.”
    – 
Elinor Malcom, Southside Magazine.

    “In a completely original niche between furniture design and sculpture, you’ll find the remarkable Derek Pearce. A master craftsman and designer, he has worked as a composer and an actor which accounts for the dramatic element to his elegant, witty pieces – particularly the Water Tables.”

    – David Benedict, The Independent
