My Lovely Workshop

Discarded doors found in the mews and a tidy up for the Open Studios has brought a renewed affection for my lovely shed. The Virginia creeper has crept to places it has never crept before and rounded all the sharp edges with its cloak of green.

wooden pictures

I love sifting through all my offcuts and waste bits of wood and seeing the possibilities of them becoming something else. I have been making these little houses with bark roofs for some time but the opportunity to exhibit one at the local eatery Toads Mouth Too focussed my efforts. The picture on the left has sycamore from my garden and elm bark from Nunhead cemetery. The one on the right has pieces of oak from old doors from Goldsmiths College
