About Me

Personal Statement

We build furniture, architectural joinery and stained glass in an Arts & Crafts or Art Nouveau style (1890-1910), primarily in oak. This includes everything from kitchens and garden studios to beds and dining tables, with front doors, bookcases and radiator covers a specialty.

Almost everything is bespoke; there are few objects generally for sale. To see some work, I regularly exhibit with the Scottish Furniture Makers Association, but outwith such shows private viewings can be arranged. Furniture is regularly shipped to England.

Untutored in the art of furniture making (I am a former archaeologist with MA Hons from St Andrews and a PhD from Glasgow), I am self taught and inspired by most of the great late Victorian/Edwardian architects and designers: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Hugh Mackay Baillie Scott, Charles Voysey, The Greene Brothers, Gustav Stickley, Frank Lloyd Wright, William Lethaby, Archibald Knox, Jessie King, E. A. Taylor, and Robert Lorimer, to name but a few.

Year Established: 1999
