Work

Here is a small selection of my work. I like to combine contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship using sustainable and reclaimed timbers and unusual woods such as Hornbeam, Laburnam, Lacewood and Plum. I also like to incorporate other materials such as metals, glass, stone. Making the handles for a piece also add to its individuality.

I trained at The Manchester School of Furniture for 3 years from 1986.The workshop was set up by myself and my colleague Lorraine Moore in 1990. We tend to work together on larger scale projects and several are mentioned here.
