Paul has enjoyed working with wood for most of his life, often in a marine environment, repairing and building boats. This experience has developed his interest in the natural qualities of different types of wood and their design capabilities. Over the last twenty years he has exhibited his work successfully in London as well as locally.
He uses a bench mounted Avon lathe and also a VB36 lathe on which he is able to make large bowls and hollow forms. Rarely working to a preconceived design, he endeavours to develop the shape, pattern and colour which is alive in each piece of selected timber. The final form of every creation is a discovery achieved during the process of turning. No two pieces are the same; each is unique.
