Pieces in bog wood
wood is timber that has lain undisturbed
beneath a blanket of peat for thousands of years.
Its dark and timeworn beauty bears
the imprint of Ireland's ancient past.
Work in Irish yew
by the Celts as the tree of life and rebirth,
the yew is reputed to be the oldest living tree in the world as it can
regrow from its old root structure. Associations with mythology, folklore
and magic are legion.
Pieces in Irish hardwood
delight in 'imperfections of nature'tales of
trial and endurance written in the timber of
our native hardwood trees that find
expression in the finished work.
Textured & carved pieces
turner pieces in various timbers have been enlivened by the application
of texture and colour.
For me each one represents an adventure
in shape and form.
