Having trained at the Rowden Atelier, I established the workshop in 2012 driven by the aspiration to create innovative pieces of contemporary furniture that demonstrate imagination in both their form and function. Through the chosen medium of wood, each concept is developed in a manner that explores the organic characteristics of the material within the distinct sculptural form of the overall design. The process itself employs traditional cabinetmaking techniques, yet the innovative nature of the design frequently requires the workshop to push the boundaries of existing practice in the realisation of each piece. As such, the creative signature of the workshop can be characterised by the juxtaposition of elegant simplicity in finished form with the underlying complexity of concept realisation.
