I'm Craftsman, Wood Turner & Up-cycler with an appreciation of beauty, especially for wood, it’s grain patterns & colours.
In my bespoke work I try to utilise the natural characteristics of wood by sympathetically shaping, creating simple flowing forms.
Colour forms an integral part of my work and I use various techniques such as burning, applying colour in the form of stains or paints & liming paste which add greater contrast, depth & texture to my work emphasising & highlighting natural grain patterns.
Fitness for purpose, form & function are also important elements of my work especially when using discarded items, where I relish the challenges presented by working with unwanted materials using them to create new functional pieces with character & charm.
