I started out building wooden boats in Norway and still use some of those techniques. My designs have a Scandinavian simplicity. I work in unique beautiful pieces of oak, ash, elm and other N. European hardwoods, often using wood sourced from the local area of the commission. My fascination is steam bending thick solid boards into arches, twists, curves and rings which make components in my designs. Finished with natural oils and tactile textures, my furniture is made to be used and enjoyed.
