Robert draws on the knowledge and experience gained from his days as an aircraft fitter, where he honed his skills and developed a fierce eye for detail. In 2006 he left a promising career in aviation to travel Asia and later New Zealand, spending the best part of a year working and trekking the wild parts of the country.

On returning to the UK he embarked on a Furniture Making degree course, with the time at university giving him important breathing space and the freedom to work without constraints. Still inspired by his earlier adventures Robert’s vision and artistry produce pieces that are unique and highly collectable.
