His auction collection brings this to the fore with an eclectic mix of objects ancient and less so, including a nearly 2000-year-old ceramic dog effigy, a midcentury lounge chair and a collection of Lalique fish sculptures.
Many of his chosen pieces lean into his idea of slightly lopsided craft, retaining the hand of the original creator – for example, a hand-embroidered bedspread, woven fruit baskets, vases and other ceramics with distinct patinas or irregularities.
Other items from the sale include a pair of 1960s Stillnovo wall lamps and a glossy ceramic sculpture by Steen Ipsen. Prices for lots range from £42 to £12,000, which will snag you an 1880s Persian Kermanshah rug. Tieghi-Walker’s curated auction runs for seven days, ending on 17 August 2022.
