I work as an Arborist and use the wood to make spoons and bowls. Using hand tools, axes and knives to shape the work creates both a tooled finish and a wonderful feel to each piece.I have been working with green wood for over 10 years and I am passionate about using hand tools and traditional techniques to create functional but attractive items.
In 2011 I was commisioned by Norman Stevens, a collector of wooden spoons from artisans from around the world, to make some spoons for his collection.
I intend to continue to use traditional tools and techniques and pass these skills down to my daughter and one day hopefuly own my own woodland where we can grow hazel and willow for coppice.
