Living and working in Northumberland.
All the materials I work with are grown, foraged or collected from my surroundings to try and create a material culture that is both unique to the region and sustainable. By living in proximity to the sources of our food and material objects, I believe we can live less damaging and more meaningful lives.
EVERYTHING WE NEED IS IN THE SOIL. PARADISE IS A GARDEN.
