I grew up in Devon, England and have been making things out of wood for as long as I can remember. From watching my father as an infant, the memory of him giving me a tool box and having a childhood surrounded by wood and a house that always had a workshop, wood is in my blood and in my soul.
I only make a handful of simple items, but that’s the way I like it - keeping it simple. I favour timeless, functional design with clean, square edge finishing over frilly, ornate pieces that quickly fall victim to trends and changing tastes.
In a world where cheap, throwaway alternatives are all too common and readily available, it’s really important to me that I’m making and supplying pieces that are made to last and keep working for many years as well as they did from day one.
