Festival: 2022

I make bespoke and limited edition furniture in Derbyshire, mostly from a range of sustainably grown hardwoods.

My main drive is to create practical items which have a sculptural element to the design. I aim to use angles and curves in such a way that something new appears every time the viewer changes their perspective.

I am currently exploring new methods of incorporating digital techniques into my work. My current project is a commission for some library steps which will use joints almost impossible to create by hand, but just feasible when controlled by a computer.
