Blog #5 – Ethical Materials

Our process of selection and procurement is painstaking, on historic pieces of wood it may take many years to locate and to prepare. Our goal is to understand the complex qualities of that exact piece; its perfect imperfections, character, facets, origin, journey, every element before we decide how this can best fit with our artistic expression.

As we work with the wood we honour the selected piece; its past and future in the same moment by transforming the wood into sculptural work.

The wood comes from ethically selected sources, taking many years to harvest and cure. We take care to honour the tree and by creating beautiful pieces it continues its journey. Our stock of Scottish timber has been built up over years from some of the finest historical timber available.
