I have worked with wood for my living for most of a lifetime and I especially enjoy creating beautiful objects which are also functional tools. My work uses a large range of woods, augmented by other materials (metals, decorative plastics, bone, etc). I enjoy experimenting with new materials too. Inlay work has become a special focus for me.
I make several hundred designs of lace bobbins, specialising in inlaid wood bobbins, I also make plain single wood bobbins. Since 2010 I am exploring new product lines such as shawl pin and ring sets using my skills in miniature turning, inlay and laminations and a variety of materials as well as wood. In 2011 I launched a selection of drop spindles for spinning.
Everything I make is guaranteed to please and of heirloom quality. In the unlikely event of any problem I'll resolve that to your satisfaction or refund you.
Established as a woodturner in 1982, resident in Australia since 1995, I learned my craft in the UK. I see myself working as a member of a long-established tradition, that of the fine craft maker, as epitomised by workers such as William Morris and Eric Gill. In today's technologically dominated world, the professional craft maker is fast becoming a threatened species, in the industrialised western nations at least. Your support of my work keeps alive a vital part of human knowledge - how to make things of beauty.
