I am a designer maker based in Lancashire, UK. I strive to create elegant, refined objects for the home, made primarily from fine native hardwoods.
I enjoy engaging with as much of the making process as possible: often starting with a tree and finishing with a polished product. This is a labourious and time consuming way of working, but incredibly satisfying. Pairing wood with other materials such as brass or leather has become an integral part of my practice and continues to provide inspiration for the next project.
If you would like to buy or commision a piece, or if you have any other enquiries I'd love to hear from you.
