Peter Needham's Profile

About

Hello! I am Peter Needham. I'm 36 and I live and work in Romiley, Cheshire. I have been turning since 2006 but I have loved working with wood all my life. I also have a keen interest in nature which influences most of the pieces I make. I have never liked being tied down to following patterns or rules so I am completely self taught and design most of my work at the lathe rather than on paper as it feels like a more pure and free form of expression to me and I have the freedom to change the design if the wood shows me that it wants to be something else. I have had my work in Stockport Art Gallery and the Treeline Gallery in Bakewell so I must be doing something right!
If you want to see what else I get up to, feel free to pop over to my website at : http://pjnwoodturning.weebly.com
