Working in wood and
stone The Studio has built an enviable reputation for good
work since its foundation in 1985.
The Studio's aim is to fulfill the needs of our clients by
producing things that are beautiful and satisfying; to
produce work to the highest possible standard as judged by
our peers; and to safeguard the standards of craftsmanship.
Work with clients, whether institutional or private, begins
at the design stage to produce items that are appropriate
to their needs and mindful of the wider context in which
they will be seen and touched.
of craftsmanship is the conjunction of mind, eye and hand
at the point of application to the material. Whilst not
disparaging the use of machines for certain tasks the
raison d'etre of the Studio lies in producing unique items
by hand. Handwork involves what is known as 'the
workmanship of risk'; every blow of the mallet and every
stroke of the gouge, pencil or brush involves a myriad of
co-ordinated actions, none of which can be guaranteed.
However, the constant practice of work, guided by the mind,
is able to produce a thing of beauty like no other.
