MalcolmFielding's Shop Announcement

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

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 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 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.
