About Justin Wheatcroft and Jose Ballesteros : As the co-founder (with Edward Stoddart) of Square Roots, I have been lucky enough to lead and collaborate with many talented and dedicated individuals. We have brought a large number of original designs to the marketplace. These products have enjoyed distribution in every continent. Moreover, these products have not followed or aped market trends. We have always strived to impart our own spirit into our work and marry artisanal processes with both traditional and modern materials.
STATEMENT OF ART:
As a maker, I see the materials as the source to the form. Possibilities are bound by the strength, elasticity, weight and connectivity of materials. Grain pattern within timbers beg to be explored and exposed. Textures and patterns can play with the eye and the touch of the skin. I believe that a simplicity of form allows the consciousness to delve deep into detailing and contrasts that are ever apparent within natural materials.
