Derek Pearce’s stunning ‘Furniture Sculptures’ are famous worldwide collected by everyone from Rock Stars to Royalty. Derek is a man of unique creative vision.

To call him a designer is to understate the case wildly, his remarkable ‘WATER TABLES’ are an idiosyncratic range of glass-topped tables featuring immaculately sculpted hippos, ducks, seals, otters, frogs and dolphins plunging in and out of glass depicting the water’s surface.

They’re gravity defying in both senses of the phrase: substantial carved and cast figures seemingly floating through water – and impossible to look at without smiling.

In a world of anonymous, mass produced commodities, the vision, wit and craftsmanship of Derek Pearce’s singular works provides welcome relief. Investments they undoubtedly are, reflecting the skill and labour behind their creation, but irresistible to anyone seeking a modern heirloom that will provoke pleasure, amusement and comment for years to come.

Derek’s ‘WATER TABLES’ were first released in 1997 and he has since exhibited and sold them throughout Europe, America and Japan.

Derek has worked in theatre, on stage, back stage, or on no stage at all, as a Performer, Stage Carpenter, Musical Director, Lecturer and Teacher (he taught Bill Baily woodwork,– that’s probably why Bill is so good on the Piano).

Derek has worked on several projects with Welfare State International creating Site Specific Theatre. He is the Design Consultant on the film “When The Whales Came” where he taught Paul Schofield how to carve, and Helen Mirren how to Polka.
