From his workshop near Dunbar in East Lothian, John works mainly to commission on a wide range of bespoke furniture and related timber projects. These objects mostly involve Scottish hardwoods as the main material, and sometimes incorporate small metal, slate or reclaimed materials for detail.
John's furniture can be described as clean lined, simple and highly functional. And also has a sense of robustness where the natural beauty of the timber enhances the over all design.

These elements are currently being explored in silver through rolled textural surfaces , photoetching and
combining this with enamel, paper / resin and beach pebbles.,
I make individually crafted mosaics, using primarily recycled materials. These include decorative mirrors and pictures, kitchen or bathroom splashbacks and garden ornaments (such as bird baths, signs and stepping stones. Flowers feature in many of the mosaics that I make, which is inspired by my love of my garden.
