Wood: Decorative woodturning colour, gilding using local timbers


Dennis works with locally grown sycamore, holly, ash and maple.

The white woods offer a natural canvas on which to incorporate a wide range of finishing techniques. Turned, carved, textured surfaces finished with water-soluble dyes and metal leaf are used to enhance the natural features of the wood whilst achieving a sympathetic balance of form and finish.

His work includes fruit displays, sycamore bowls embellished with silver leaf and wall plates of ash and copper.

Bowls commissioned on request to match interior designs.
