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, etc). I enjoy experimenting with new materials too.

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 professional 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.
