Max Lamb exhibited his new work in carved plaster in the magnificent surroundings of the Cast Court, at the V&A. The piece is a commission by HSBC Private Bank as part of their Connection Collection.

Lamb designed the piece based on a cast of part of the façade of the HSBC Private Bank HQ at 78 St James Street – a building designed in 1840 by British architect Sydney Smirke, now listed by English Heritage for its historical, architectural and decorative significance. The piece was made using the traditional plaster casting technique, resulting in a plaster monolith from which Lamb used stonemasonry techniques to remove material; the final work is a bench designed for public use both at the V&A and within HBSC’s HQ.
