I’ve planted this grove as a thank you to the trees that provided me with the material I love to use the most.
Thanks also to my family and friends who have supported my craft practise and who I know really care about
the environmental impact of the things they invest in.

I create small batch products that amplify traditional techniques in a contemporary way. The craft skills I have developed are inspired by boat builder’s processes and copper fixings. I mainly work with Ash using the steam-bending process to utilize the strength, bendiness and shock resistance of the species. The properties of Ash make it the most widely used timber throughout evolution and the material humans are most connected to. The triangular components I designed create a sculptural flow within my work but more importantly there is hardly any waste involved. I finish all of my work with a natural food safe oil and I make useful objects with longevity. The environmental impact within my production is reduced at every stage, every aspect is carefully considered but this is not enough. I intend to plant a grove as a thank you to the trees that grew for all those years and provided me with a material with such incredible properties. And to my lovely family and friends who have supported my work and care about the environmental impact of the things they invest in. I also know the importance of keeping traditional craft passing through generations. What would happen if there was no material for them to use?

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
