I became fascinated by green-woodworking techniques and the potential of coppiced woodland for manufacturing beautiful products, after visiting and seeing the work of a colleague at the fabulous, Eccleshall Woods Sawmill in Sheffield.
Inspired by the natural forms and strengths of wood, I aim to create hand-made, often bespoke coppice products using traditional green-woodworking techniques, such as cleaving, pole-lathing and steam-bending.
All of the green wood that I use is sourced from sustainably managed woodlands and sites looked after for their biodiversity and peoples enjoyment of it. These include nature reserves managed by the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust.
