Anna Nichols creatively designs and makes fine furniture to the highest standards of craftsmanship by commission, using modern and traditional cabinet making techniques.
Anna can work to a brief or discuss designs and ideas that have not yet been set. Although she works in hardwoods, she is also open to designing with other materials in mind, for example glass and metals. The look of her furniture is elegant and stylish working with curves with her inspiration drawn from nature, and how humans interact with objects around them.
Anna is also happy to work with Interior Designers and Architects, and is fully 2D/3D CAD proficient.
Anne is a designer and maker of hand built ceramics mainly working in porcelain.
Her ceramics are a personal and permanent response to places and the moments of randomness and impermanence that take place in them; often starting with a walk and including printing and writing haiku.
She is interested in collaborations, residencies and commissions.

I design and create individual items of furniture in various timbers such as cherry, maple, oak, ash and beech.
Influenced mainly by the Arts and Crafts Movement and Japanese carpentry I enjoy mixing woods and using construction details as an integral part of the design.
