Hampton Wick

Organ case 1973

This was my first job on leaving Kingston School of Art. Mathew Copley  organ builder had moved this organ from a corner in Hampton Wick Parish Church to the gallery and as it was now free standing it required  new panelling. I made the arcading and the carved pinnacles completely by hand in the shed of my grandfathers house in Batersea. It was an enjoyable first project but not without a great many of the organisational problems that confront a novice carrying out their first business contract.  At  art college I had been very interested in harpsichords and clavichords and had written a very basic students dissertation about the construction of clavichords.  So the chance to get involved with  this project was amazing. Mathew is now a leading name in the world of organ building and design and I might have joined his firm at that time if it were not for my ambition to be a stone mason working on one of our great cathedrals.
