With a selection of old worn hammers I strike a mixture of surfaces onto my tableware. I like the idea of making work look and feel non precious. With each hammer blow I texture the surface making it rough or very subtle. Used with smooth polished edges and touches of gold my aim is to encourage the owner to take their time to feel, explore and enjoy the piece.

I make 'one of a kind' acoustic and electric guitars including six string twelve string single or double neck models....Basses from four to seven string. These are made using as much recycled materials as possible. They are made entirely to the customer's requirements.
I am a quality woodturner of native timber, mostly windblown. My work is very highly regarded in craft circles. I make most items that can be turned or carved, also restoration work.
I work on a relatively small scale as I like to create bowls which can be held in the hand. I also like the challenge of creating work which, although small, has a presence and strength of it's own.
My design preference for simplicity may be a positive reaction to the years I spent working as an architectural/artisan turner in Bath and Glasgow, reproducing, often heavily ornate, traditional designs for listed buildings etc. I now like to make work with a simpler, contemporary feel.
