After many years painting on canvas Darren Rumley decided to experiment working with concrete and thus One Artisan (based only 2 miles from here) was born.
With a passion for sculptural pieces Darren wanted to create “art with a function”. Concrete is a very tactile material and when mixed with other organic products it provides the most wonderful, physical presence. It is not only beautiful and robust but is difficult to resist touching.
The debut collection includes stunning polished concrete Luna Lights, which diffuse a soft ambient glow. The larger sizes are perfect for indoors or out and work perfectly in harmony when arranged in an informal collection. The huge pebble is both a uniques garden feature and comfortable seat and a welcome addition to any urban or rural landscape.
You’ll find Darren’s incredibly tactile pebble seats, lights and water features dotted around the site.
