I enjoy the whole process of making each piece, it is what being a maker is all about. Yes, I love the feeling of completion but it’s the journey too. My degree is 3Dimensional Art & Design, wood, metal & plastics. On year 2 of my course i started sticking materials together, this is where I developed my ideas of lamination, but it was when I discovered the coloured veneers that the fun of turning began for me. From the sketch book, pencils and paints, the idea develops, then the prototype, the stripes. Making up my laminated blocks using wood, veneers and glue, it all looks pretty messy until it goes on the lathe and I begin to turn the piece, then I stop the lathe and there are the stripes, so crisp and bright, it’s a great feeling! I make many functional pieces using my laminated blocks of wood. Each design has it’s own configuration of lines and they all have stripes somewhere; Bowls, lidded pots, hollow pots with striped finials. Functional items; corkscrews and bottle stoppers, cheese and butter knifes, cheese boards, salt and pepper mills. And to wear; necklaces, earrings, cufflinks. I make items to order and by commission.
