The Form Issue: Out Now

Hole & Corner's tenth issue explores the theme of form: inviting some of the best artists and designers in the world to examine the nature of beauty and the importance of process and function in transforming raw material into finished object. We discuss form and beauty with Adrian Joffe of Comme de Garçons, leatherware designer Bill Amberg and the legendary Sir Peter Blake. We visit the stunning marble quarries in Carrara and meet reclaim and salvage connoisseurs Retrouvius.
We spend a day on the river with rush weaver Felicity Irons and speak to mannequin makers Proportion London as well as interviews with model makers, sculptors, potters and designers. And, while we were at it, we thought we may as well tackle the origins of art too – uncovering the story of possibly the earliest ever example of a sculpture found in Britain – from the man whose back field it originated from.
