In his own words
“I start off with a clear idea of what I am about to make but I am easily swayed”, he says “I let the wood express itself. Sometimes it feels like all I have to do is bring out the hidden beauty” As each piece can take from 1 month to 1 year to make, this is as far from mass-production as you can get. Giving uniqueness to a one off creation.
'Visually remarkable and immaculately crafted, the merit of these objects is that they tell us about their maker. They are the fruit of a great number of lived experiences, and their perfection is the result of first-hand knowledge, passion and a real engagement with the material. Today, after years of deprecation, skill and technique are making a comeback'. Patrick Favardin Critic - Paris, Nov 2007.
'Through my work I aim to have a lasting impact on the way in which people view old and unusable timber and to make a more creative and ecological contribution to the major issue of recycling, deforestation and the future preservation of the planet'. John Alfredo Harris
