   naturally comfortable.
In a life before I started living, I studied advertising, got an apprenticeship in joinery, build lots of kitchens and even a house or two. An accident in 1997 left me with 20% vision in my right eye and plenty of recuperating time. I could no longer function in the industry, so I started to play with wood - sculpting and mixing form with function.

I moved to Knysna and stayed in an eco-village in the forest where I became familiar with natural building methods. It was on one of the beaches around Plettenberg Bay that I stumbled upon a pile of driftwood that was screaming to be made into chairs...
So I made a couple and loved the old boney look. Things have developed from there and I love where my chairs and tables are going - tidy, controlled chaos.
