I design and make contemporary furniture. My work is always carried out with a consideration for environmental sustainability.
This collection is made from locally coppiced hazel, which I harvest by hand in the UK. Coppicing is a woodland management method that provides a renewable supply of wood. As well as being made from sustainable materials, this collection is designed to be visually lightweight and unobtrusive resulting in pieces that have aesthetic longevity. The name of each piece is from the vocabulary used by traditional woodmen, many words from which are now almost lost.
