Furniture Making

My Story

My pursuit of a career in furniture making brought me to Cork in September 2003. Since then I have completed my five-year apprenticeship, opened up my own business in 2011, and also am currently teaching at CSN College of Further Education. I love to problem-solve through design especially in relation to furniture. My work is very much led by function first, and then an exploration of suitable joinery in relation to the material, this in turn helps to inform the final aesthetic. I strive to create a beautiful balance in each piece by combining traditional making methods with a contemporary aesthetic. My furniture is simple in form and versatile in use, blending into any environment.
