"During its emergence, creative work calls for two simultaneous foci - the world and the self, and as a consequence of this double focus every profound work is essentially a microcosmic representation of the world and an unconscious self-portrait at the same time."
Juhani Pallasmaa's The Thinking Hand
Quentin is a maker of brass and bronze singing bowls, gongs and other forged instruments, working out of a small workshop in Wiltshire.
"The primary intention running through all my instrument making is an attempt to encapsulate or rather to gesture toward in sound, the ineffable. I believe there's a quality to these sounds that incline towards the noetic, inasmuch as they touch the heart, assist us to 'come home' to ourselves and so take us to a place of deeper contemplation. The world falls away, allowing us to dwell if only temporarily, in a place of peace and restoration.
"The work is also about silence; silence, stillness, listening from that stillness and only then, sound - which by its nature points back to the origin out of which it came. I welcome the opportunity to work with any who feel drawn to give singular attention to what these themes have to offer themselves and others."
