With a BSC in environmental science and invovement in direct action opposing the destruction of ancient forests and cultures, I felt obliged to make a living using sustainable resources: all his wood is sourced locally.
Learning by trial and often painful error I turned professional in 1995 with the help of the Princes Trust and a few years later was flattered to be invited onto the Register of Professional Turners held by the Worshipful Company of Turners, at the time, the youngest person to be accepted.
I am motivated by the desire to produce simple, beautiful and practical pieces, which show the unique character of each piece of wood and try to avoid any superfluous embellishment; pure, simple, elegant lines are what I am aiming for.
Tim's work is highly sought after. Other outlets include Messums, Jasper Conran and Fortnum and Mason.
