John Galvin Design Tuesday 21 Jun 2011

John's passion for design, craftsmanship and art means he sees his work as ‘functional pieces of art'.

This is evident in his soldier table and lights. His designs are innovative creations that encompass contemporary design with quality craftsmanship. This marriage is apparent in his production of pieces that clearly reflect the emotions, respect and love he has set into each piece.

‘Many of my designs have taken root from childhood memories and have a playful element. A prime example of this is the Toy Soldier table. I loved my toy soldiers and made lego fortresses for them when in battle. The toy soldier table captures this memory perfectly and brings a quiet smile to my face every time'.
