Wood

Festival: 2018

My design cues are taken from the natural environment and can be witnessed in the smooth, gentle and flowing profiles of each piece. Obviously wood is a natural material, so the colouring and grain pattern of each piece is truly unique. I take pleasure in unlocking the incredible beauty of the wood itself, and love how you can express yourself in ways that words just cannot. Nothing measures up to the excitement and discovery of peeling away layers of wood and exposing the hidden treasures in the grain, texture and colour. Creating both the functional and the bespoke.
