85fathoms

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: North East   

My work has evolved from a background of engineering and boat building/refurbishment, plus a natural ability and love of making things by hand in wood. I design and make items of furniture that have complementary features of aesthetic and structure, and that ultimately let the natural beauty of the wood remain the main focus of each piece. My designs often blend a contemporary modern look with a somewhat retro tinge, with strong influences from my boat building days in the use of laminated curves and the use of contrasting wood types to induce a colour variation into the aesthetic. I use no machinery in the construction at all and each piece is finely finished by hand to really let the wood and natural features stand out.

Andrew Spilsbury Shaker Boxes

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

I have had a love of working with wood for over 40 years, mostly furniture making but also some turning and now box making.  I love the smell of wood when it is worked, exposing and presenting the grain for others to appreciate.  I have made furniture inspired by pieces made by the Shaker craftsmen and now make Shaker boxes to their traditional patterns, using Cherry and Maple woods steam bent and fastened with copper tacks and rivets. My boxes, trays and carriers with handles make thoughtful and useful presents. I continue to develop my range of creations in order to offer useful and decorative objects to treasure and enjoy.  Sizes are from 9cm x 6cm x 3cm to 36cm x 25cm x 15cm. Prices from £20 to £140 approx.

I am a basket maker, working mainly with willow and coppiced wood.

by kirsty

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Wales   

After completing her BA (hons) in Carmarthen, Kirsty moved to Cardiff. She has set up home in her studio where Kirsty designs, makes and alters to her heart’s content. Home and the use of the spaces that we occupy are the source and the basis of her creative practice.

A new line of customised vintage furniture has been emerging which runs alongside her statement lighting collection ‘Sphery’. Each piece is chosen for its bold shapes and then is lovingly transformed. They are given a new lease of life with a fabric twist: old G plan chairs and 60’s dresses look fantastic and are a great decorative statement in any home. There is never two of a kind.

Individual home accessories have been slowly taking over the shelves and walls of the studios – see what’s the newest creation to take home.

He is enthusiastic and passionate, exceptionally creative and practical. We are both makers – primarily in wood, but also ceramic, stone and painting. Our business has come about as a natural progression of the people that we are and where we have come from – combining such diverse areas of study as 3d sculpting and geology!

D.A.Hart

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

I work with hand selected hardwoods to design unique pieces of strong, elegant furniture. Each piece is created to meet the demands of modern living whilst maintaining an eye for the traditional principles of construction and design.

I’m inspired by the beauty of trees and the wonderful material they provide, the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement and the simplicity and elegance of Art Deco.  I believe we all have an instinctive and historic affinity with wood and strive to celebrate this in my work.
