Featured Artist

“Steam-bending is a hot, physical, unpredictable process with a magical moment when steam softens wood so that it is malleable enough to be hand-bent using jigs and formers. It is more exciting and less precise than most woodwork. It can be thought of as a handshake with wood in that both the maker and the timber bring their experience and each bend is slightly different.”
