Crinkle Crankle

The 2023 strawberry table is a bricolage interpretation of a traditional English garden feature: the crinkle crankle wall. Whereas its waves usually keep fruit trees sheltered, the sinuous low-level wall bears strawberries today.

Using the structural strength provided by its curved geometry, the low-level wall is one leaf thin: an opportunity to create unexpected encounters either side of the wall and to celebrate one strawberry at a time!

The structure has been assembled without mortar with the support of stonemason from PAYE. The stone bricks are Portland Stone Heritage bricks, cut from stone waste and donated by Albion Stone. The clay bricks have been salvaged from local London site by General Demolition. Once all strawberries are eaten, the table will be dismantled for immediate reuse.
