Dominic Wilcox is a British designer who creates unique and innovative objects, drawings and installations. His work has been exhibited and published extensively worldwide.
"I spend most of my time attempting to reveal the hidden surprises which are embedded within the banal, everyday things that surround us."
"I'm interested in certain areas of contemporary art, craft and design and my work moves between many different areas of creative expression. Some of my ideas develop from observations on human behaviour and I express them through the objects I create. I also experiment with materials to find surprises that can't be found simply by thinking with a pen or computer."
