ikonhouse Event - Live Classical Piano Music to present Master Cabinet Maker Laura Bergsoe
Wednesday 6 December 2017 at 7.00pm at ikonhouse
Laura Bergsøe is a Master Cabinetmaker working from her own workshop producing elegant one-offs from carefully selected pieces of wood. She is an apprentice from Cabinetmakers Rud. Rasmussen, a challenging education from the most prestigious workshop in Denmark. Working with wood is like working hand-in-hand with nature. The scent, the feel, the twisting organic forms. To open a tree for the first time, is nothing short of a revelation. Nature quietly gives up her secrets, revealing a history for us inside. As a woodworker, it is essential for her that her work bears a humble reference to its origin; a respect for the material and its tactile presence, telling the story that makes us curious, excited, and seduced. Each table she creates holds The Signature Spike, a pure silver spike that is placed into the side of the piece, and can be removed to reveal its history. The spike bears her name, the date the piece was created, which materials she has used, and for whom the table was made. The Signature Spike signifies that each table’s origin is unique, and can be passed down for generations.
Dmytro Vynohradov was born in Kiev, Ukraine, as a successor of a dynasty dedicated to art, music and literature. He showed great music abilities in his early childhood as a pianist. Growing among musicians, Dmytro performed Mozart Fantasia in d-moll at a mere 8 years old and performed Schubert's 4 Impromptus and Prokofiev's 12 pieces at 10 years old.
