We work to commission on interior and exterior projects, whether for single pieces or groups of work. We are happy to work with clients directly, or with designers, architects or agents. We also show our independent work through gallery exhibitions and art fairs. Vessel and disc forms have been at the heart of our work since the beginning, and more recently the larger single forms have been joined by groups of pieces forming 'Still Lifes'. Taller standing forms and our more experimental work complete what we do.
Our work uses English hardwoods, predominantly oak, worked by hand with axe, gouges and drill. The pieces contrast strong frontal images with individual textures made one mark at a time without preplanning. Pieces may be limed white and then surface scorched to bring out the 'drawing' of gouge mark, or scorched or ink-stained black.
