Faye Toogood is a British designer with academic training in the theory and practice of fine art, and a vocational background at the forefront of the magazine industry.
Toogood’s objects are grouped together into her trademark numbered ‘Assemblages’. This allows her to avoid the standard and instead experiment with the materials and processes that dominate her thinking at a particular time. With each Assemblage, she engages not only with the products themselves, but also with the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited.
All of her pieces are handmade by small-scale fabricators and traditional artisans, with an honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material.
