Welcome to Love Your Plane!
We are a small independent Shop, Studio & Gallery based in Oxford.
Love Your Plane is a design & make project which explores the role of art in everyday life. We believe in combining good design, craftwork and artistic inspiration as symbolised by our use of the woodworker's hand plane in our title.
As a collective of Oxford-based artists and designers, we aim to bring a new and refreshing approach to some of the objects and materials that make up our surroundings.
We collaborate with other artists, craftspeople and designers and make a range of products including artwork and furniture.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to be offered a residency at Hooke Park in West Dorset. The brief was to design & make furniture for a new building. I worked alongside 5 other furniture makers and boatbuilders. View the article below to learn more about my experience. Many thanks to the Boat Building Academy for their ongoing support and Hooke Park for the opportunity.
This is the first solo show for Daniel McNaboe, he has used the period between graduation and now to develop his skill and deepen his ideas to produce an interesting body of work. Many among his generation may be rushing to gain recognition, but For Danny, one of his attributes, is his patience to tackle big personal themes. His works are reflections on his family and friends, he draws close attention to them, perhaps asking whether they make up who he is.
