I started my business in 1993 after studying three dimensional design at Newcastle Upon Tyne Polytechnic. Most of the components in my designs are steam bent from green wood, and that is one of the reasons that I like to use coppiced wood. I split the logs myself instead of using a sawmill to cut them up. Coppiced wood is the traditional source of wood for chair makers. I like to try out new ideas to make a better chair, although I still admire the best traditional designs.
