“I am a designer-maker in wood.
For many years I specialised in the design and manufacture of glass vessels and panels and large ceramic installations, for both private and commercial clients.
More recently though I have become fascinated with wood, particularly creating work from freshly felled trees, timber known as green wood. A living material that moves and twists as you work it. The shapes and textures that can be created are endless.
It is a material which can be used to create both practical items and artistic creations. It can be manipulated by the artist but the many inclusions, knots and grain patterns often dictate shape and design forcing the artist to reconsider a piece during the making process. It is both a pleasure to work green wood, and a challenge”.
