I am a woodturner from central Scotland with a love of rustic natural turnings.
You will find my woodturning to be varied in both style and size; switching from delicate pieces incorporating intricate finials to very large wooden bowls which can be over 20 inches in diameter. Natural edge rustic pieces are my speciality, as I believe that these show the beauty of wood in a more natural form.
Creating needle felted marvels!
My interest in glass started from my work as a graphic designer in London and Edinburgh and has slowly grown into a passion for creating unique and original handmade pieces of glass. My inspiration is nature and the beautiful environment of Fife and Scotland and I incorporate beach combing finds and natural materials, amongst others, into some of my contemporary glass pieces.

Brodie's recent work explores tension and balance. He contrasts outer surfaces with inner shapes, sensual curves with hard edges.
He calls the original blown a 'pod' and, with this organic image in mind with great precision, he cuts through the glass to reveal its structure. This dissected work creates a window into another world where dancing curves and open spaces contrast and unite.
