I make contemporary bespoke furniture using primarily native hard woods, sourced as wind fallen trees and converted into boards for construction. I also incorporate other materials (glass, stainless steel, leather) wherever required/requested.
My formal training was carried out though an apprenticeship working under a time served professional, here I also gained a city and guilds level 3 qualification in furniture making and fitting.
My inspiration derives from the flowing form, colouring and simplicity of the trees themselves. During the design process I use various techniques to explore design concepts: 3D computer modelling, mock-ups and sketches are all possibilities here. I use traditional methods of construction such as dovetails and mortice/tenon, these methods ensure my work is beautiful yet durable.

VanillaKiln is a studio boutique with porcelain jewellery and ceramics by artisan Jude Winnall. Everything is individually and skillfully hand crafted in a fusion of sculptural form and innovative design.
The main jewellery collection is an evolving one inspired by an affinity with fabric. Lined in a glossy celadon blue glaze, the range is reminiscent of fresh white linen featuring gathers, rolls and folds.
The ceramics are equally artistic with freeform, contemporary styling. There are lots of beautiful and useful pieces in store with the option of some superb gift packaging. If you love to give, browse the VanillaKiln boutique where you will be spoilt for choice.
