About

Turning From England to Canada by way of France

Turning and carving has been an important part of my work since the mid ‘70s when I started working as a furniture maker. I was born in England and have lived and worked in England, the beautiful countryside of South Western France and now am based in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. I live in an old farmhouse with my wife, Ellie and my border collie dog, Joni. The original barn is now my workshop.

I currently spend a part of every year teaching turning all over the world and I really enjoy sharing what I've learned with fellow turners, many of whom have become good friends. My work has been selected for numerous awards and has been featured in many publications including “New Masters of Woodturning” and “New Masters of the Wooden Box”.

It’s my observation that our lives are being smothered with mediocrity and uniformity all wrapped in plastic easy care, throw away packages. In a subtle way we are all being conditioned to accept these inferior standards when it comes to quality and design. It is important for me to think that when I create something it might in some small way break that mould of dull predictability. In the “Rescue” mills in particular I see the creation of a useful, beautiful object that will give pleasure for many years to come and I find that intensely satisfying in itself.
