2013 Commissions

During 2013, I have been busy working extensively to commission. Indeed, most of my work is to individual private commission and is about a personal approach to the design and making process. This means that we design the piece between us, working closely together.

This personal approach also means that I am not very keen on having professional photographs taken of the private commissions, and showing them either online or between clients. The commissioning process to me is all about it being unique and bespoke.

To get around this lack of images, I thought that it would be a quirky idea to ask the commissioners for an image that they are happy to share.

This is the start of the dialogue…
