Rob Elliot has seized the opportunity to fulfil a dream. Since 1987, he has built on the experience of three generations of woodworkers to design furniture using only locally grown timber.
Bringing his inherent skills to the natural beauty of the wood, Rob Elliot has succeeded in producing furniture to be treasured; furniture sought out by householder and connoisseur alike. Rob works mainly in Wych Elm and makes a point of using only trees that have died naturally, ensuring no living trees are felled to make this richly patterned, handcrafted furniture.
Rob Mulholland, a contemporary Scottish artist based in Stirlingshire, Scotland, has created this unique collection of hand crafted metal bowls. Each piece is individually coloured and patterned by applying heat over the surface of the metal. A full range of his work is available in galleries throughout the U.K.

I design furniture and architectural joinery in an Arts & Crafts or Art Nouveau style (1890-1910), from kitchens and garden studios to beds and dining tables, with front doors, bookcases and radiator covers a specialty. I regularly use stained glass, beaten copper, and engravings in my work. Almost everything is bespoke; there are few objects generally for sale.
