About the Artist
Seeking inspiration from the natural world around him, Steve creates individually designed boxes and wall art from his workshop studio in the Wairau Valley, Marlborough.
Originally from North Yorkshire where he taught craft work, made fine hardwood boxes and pieces of furniture from British and European timbers. Since moving to Marlborough with his family in 2009, Steve has been exploring New Zealand and Australian woods in his work. Most of the timber is recycled, rescued or wood from storm-damaged trees.
Steve’s fascination for creating boxes and wall art continues to evolve, exploring design and form but always allowing the natural beauty of the wood to be fully appreciated.
Steve finely finishes his work with Danish Oil and Citrus Beeswax. As he uses no stains or dyes, all of the wood colours that you see are natural.
