" I have been a wood turner for over 20 years and it's my passion. I have been working in mid- Devon and, more recently, Somerset.
Sometimes it's the wood that drives the design and sometimes the beauty I see within the wood. For a piece to work just right, it has to inspire and nourish the artist first. To feel that rush of anticipation of what is possible in the piece and then to see the beauty which lies beneath.
A log is just a piece of wood until it has been sculpted, designed and fashioned into an art form. Then it becomes something else. It's that something that makes us want to take it home. Every time we look at it, it gives something back."
