ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I have over 10 years experience in woodland work and working with wood. After watching too many nice pieces of timber ending up in firewood piles I purchased a chain saw sawmill system and began using this wood in a more creative and satisfying way. All the timber I use has come from local woodland management programs or is a buy product from local tree surgery work and would otherwise have ended up as firewood.

Trading as wholegrain woodness, I make hand crafted rustic and bespoke furniture and furnishings utilizing the natural form of the wood. I work from my workshop in the bowl of the Preseli hills in north Pembrokeshire, within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and take my inspitation from nature, my surroundings and by using the materials in interesting and unusual ways. I like to keep the design simple and let the wood do the talking and bring out the “wholegrain woodness” in all my work.
