I initially trained in 3D design and for many years specialised in the design and manufacture of hand blown glass vessels and panels and large ceramic tile installations, for both private and commercial clients. Six years ago, I was given a lathe by a friend and that was the start of my passion for making in wood. Using mainly English native ‘green’ (recently felled) timber, my distinctive decorative vessels curve from a small footprint to beautiful, impressive objects with wide edges. They are usually rich in texture created with pyrography and carving, often embellished with acrylic colour and silver leaf. In 2015 I was the recipient of a Bursary from the Worshipful Company of Turners which enabled me to spend time working with Jacques Vesery, it was an amazing opportunity. That year I was also invited to participate in the UK Crafts Council ‘Hothouse’ scheme for emerging makers and this prompted me to decide to become a full-time maker in wood. My distinctive work is exported worldwide and has featured in many exhibitions in Europe, USA, the Middle East and Asia. It can be found in several private collections, numerous galleries and luxury homes and mansions and is becoming a firm favourite of interior designers. Bespoke pieces have also been commissioned for prestigious sporting events and corporate collections.
