For as long as I can remember, I have designed and made things – all sorts of things – and, perhaps a little unusually, I have always been interested in different materials, tools and techniques. Through this never-ending curiosity, I have developed designs in both wood and metal, and so my portfolio is rather eclectic. If my making is varied, I try to be consistent in my designs. I look for elegance, a simplicity of line combined with rigorous construction. Many of the techniques I use involve traditional skills, and often I’m using tools over a century old.
