My work is unashamedly extravagant.
It is concerned with craft and beauty: taking as much pleasure in the process and detail as in the overall form.
It acknowledges the past - without revelling in historicism.
It looks forward - without obsessing in technology.
It is always ambitious. Often a little too ambitious, some might say.
I love to live dangerously: to let ideas wander well beyond the safe zone. That is where I get my adrenalin rush. This is design as extreme sport.
Specialties: Design and realisation of sculptural furniture, pure sculpture, and decorative art pieces.
Restoration, completion and customisation of fine antique metalwork.
My background is in mechanical and manufacturing engineering: and my work draws on, and seamlessly merges, a broad spectrum of production methods, from the latest digital techniques to traditional crafts and artisan techniques.
