about.

 

Dave trained in fine furniture and contemporary design. He is inspired by architecture and natural structures found in British flora and fauna, combining natural flowing forms with contemporary lines. Specialising in innovative design and construction techniques enabling an ethos to always challenge and bend the traditional. Every piece should ask questions and be irresistible to touch.


The most rewarding part of being a maker is the conceptualising of his client's themes or feelings into solid pieces. He believes in building a piece through shared ideas, taking time to consider the space for the project and reasons behind the commission long before any woodwork has started. Whether the projects are custom fitted storage solutions or sculpted furniture, beauty and pragmatism are routed in meticulous design. Dave actively involves his clients in the creative process, resulting in products that are ultimately more meaningful to his customers.
