Working with locally sourced material from the Sussex Downlands, I make contemporary pieces that celebrate wood in a tactile, sculptural form. Each item is a one off, and though the basic shape can be repeated, every turning inevitably finds its own outline and character.
Turning has more than a touch of alchemy about it. The most unpromising timber often reveals the most incredible patterns and colours as the layers are peeled away. While I start with a shape in mind, the structure of the underlying grain often leads somewhere quite different.
