His work is the result of a profound connection with the Buckinghamshire woodlands that surround his studio in High Wycombe. Using traditional woodworking techniques, he crafts wooden trooks into handmade, characterful collections of toys and accessories for the home. Each functional piece utilises its natural form, making it unique.
