Table and floor lamps are currently at the core of my work.
I am not a trained designer or artist but I see myself as a craftsman. I like to keep things simple and try to let the wood grain be the main focus in my work. My lamps tend to have simple profiles to allow the colours, textures and the beautiful qualities of the wood to shine through. The simplicity of the bases also means that they work with a variety of different lampshades. I work with many different print makers and designers who create beautiful lamp shades to complement my bases. I feel strongly about preserving my craft in the UK so I use native hardwoods from local sawmills. Not only does this support local business, but it also helps secure the wellbeing of our native trees by funding local forestry projects and reducing imports.
