The ancient Wye Bridge has been an artistic inspiration to many over the years and this cabinet (and two other Hereford ‘bridge-themed’ pieces) were created by Tim for exhibition in 2008, in celebration of his native City.
The choice of theme came partly from the recognition that the passing years and the events that they carry can create a growing gulf between people, yet bridges can be built before that river widens into a sea and the chance for reconciliation is lost.
The rich colours of cherry and walnut were chosen to echo the warmth of the real bridge’s sandstone.
There are removable wine bottle shelves within the three vertical sections and storage space for glasses behind the doors of the two mirror-backed compartments between.
Concealed hinges have been used for all doors and the bottle shelves may be removed if desired to allow alternative use of this unusual piece.
