I make furniture, bowls and sculptural objects out of Scottish hardwoods. My inspiration comes directly from the wood itself and I am always looking out for unusual pieces of timber. I like to make useful objects that are unique, beautiful and different.
I use a number of different techniques. I cleave wood along the grain to use the natural shapes within the wood and I carve with chainsaw, arbortec and chisels to achieve different forms.
Using hardwood enables me to finish my pieces to a high degree allowing the natural beauty of the wood to be brought out by the natural oil and beeswax finish.
