Burtenshaw works with the materials historically valued within sculpture, such as granite or bronze, and explores how they translate into domestic contexts. For example, granite work tops on pre-fabricated melamine units are translated into art language as sculpture acknowledging some material slippage we often fail to notice. His work juxtaposes these materials and their shared trade references into sculptural works where granite is placed on carpet tiles, cast bronze is placed on high glossed MDF and abstract objects are created within standard trade dimensions.
