Following my Fine Arts Degree,  I worked at the National Theatre in the Prop Making Department for 27 years and was the main woodturner. This meant I combined my Fine Arts skills with all manor of crafts and problem solving; for example making a 7 metre table with 9” square section turned legs for Richard 3rd, which had to survive being violently thrown over by Sir Ian McKellen every night in order to form a  defensive battlement! I made an exceptional barber’s chair for the production of Sweeney Todd for which I had to make a welded metal frame clad with a very complicated series of split turnings to disguise the mechanism.

Following my Theatre career I now do individual commissions from small runs of production work such as furniture legs and decorations etc. I am also a Potter and turn items in wood to compliment this work, such as wooden lids for the caddies I make.

Please feel free to contact me via my email address, commissions are welcome.
