Working Man Studio


Popularity: Page View: 926 Site Visit: 25

The work I produce is a conscious amalgam of a number of interests I have and an attempt to reconcile these interests in a contemporary way while, at the same time referencing history through art and craft. Though my work may not appear as representative of historic times I do draw much inspiration from them. Also, I am trying to produce work that is easy to use and live with and yet provides visual stimulation, aesthetic pleasure and encourages a conceptual linking to life and times long past. I am fascinated by most things ancient and by life in ancient times in general. The Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages of Korea, China, Japan and Europe all interest me greatly.

I am interested in and fascinated greatly by most things ancient and life in ancient times in general, particularly in the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. Though my work may not appear representative of these particular times I do draw inspiration from them. Ancient Korea, China, Thailand and Japan as well as Bronze and Iron Age Europe all hold special interest for me. Also, I have strong interests in architecture, design and our natural environment.
