The Workshop Studio

My Studio is described, for various reasons, as a temple, the sand pit and a factory. Regardless we have a great workspace where Clients love to visit and discuss the development of projects or simply pick up on the ambience of a very special shed.

Materials in Stock

Nature has provided such a rich palate of natural materials. The core material I utilise is a renewable resource, timber. It’s a gift of nature, challenging yet rewarding beyond belief. Over the years I’ve developed an oeuvre of works based on two local and complimentary timbers, Macassar Ebony and Redgum. Figured Blackwood has also been an important element for me. To respond to commissions I have amassed a considerable collection of these select species which gives me broad choice of reliable, consistent material.
