I am a woodsman.
The first creative stage of all my furniture begins by sourcing locally grown timber and converting it myself. I draw upon traditional woodworking skills such as steam bending. My work is characterful with hand tooling, which I believe adds an important human warmth to my work, that machining lacks.
While studying at Falmouth University (BA Hons 3D design), I experimented with modern manufacturing and design, which has given me a creative and contemporary base to my work. I aim to produce functional heirlooms of the future, that age gracefully.
Other strings to my bow include timber frame carpentry, lumberjacking, whittling and building restoration within South Devon, UK.
