          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.
