The people –
The “beast” is a rather foolish name refering to the works of my parner and myslef (Julian Fincham).
The name –
I wouldnt choose the name now, but ive used it, in some connotation or other, for the past 20+ years, so its hard to change now. A lot of my early work was on the roland tr-606, and the name comes from that, eluding to the pursuite of perfection, rather than out of worship of any entitiy or otherwise.
But, yes, maybe somthing a little more mainstream would be more apropriate now!
The location –
We work out of a small workshop in rural Devon, in the United Kingdom. Virtually ever process required in the products of our own that we sell is performed on site, by us.
We take deliveries of 8×4 sheets of metal, and send out custom machined panels.
We buy rough sawn timber, grown locally, and send out beautiful cases.
We buy emulsion and inks, expose silk screens on site, and make custom prints.
We buy fabrics on the roll and my partner (whom, in another life, was a costume designer in London’s West end) makes fabulous carry cases.
