FOUR-POSTER beds, quirky tables, a couple of penguins and a shark are among the creations at Jason Addison's furniture-meets-art exhibition.

The young Stroud furniture designer will be exhibiting at the former Stroud Music Centre shop in London Road next month.

"I have been making sculptures and pieces of furniture for as long as I can remember," said Jason.

"I went to Wynstones School, which encouraged woodwork, and then Thomas Keble, which also had a buzzing art and DT department with great teachers."

Jason studied sculpture at Stroud Art School and focused on furniture.

He said: "I like to make art which serves a purpose. I use a wide range of materials from wood to metal, fabrics foam, resin, glass and gold."

Jason is currently in talks with Liberty in London about his design The Cube sofa which is made up of beautiful upholstered foam cubes held together with sturdy zips. It can be unzipped to create a bed, a chaise longue, eight separate seats or a huge toy to be enjoyed by adults or children.

Jason's exhibition opens on Friday at 7pm and is open daily until Sunday March 10.
