It takes creative imagination to visualise a wind blown fallen tree transformed into a stunning individual piece of art, sculpture or furniture. That is what Aaron Sterritt does on a daily basis. Aaron’s creativity and relationship with wood is in his DNA. Raised in a log cabin in the heart of the Scottish Highlands - Aaron was born to work with wood.
Aaron's understanding of wood and how he stamps his personality on it is totally focused on shaping and crafting wood in a natural way. Splitting the wood along the cells of the grain, keeping the strength of the timber intact, creating beautiful natural shapes. Aaron's skill is then to take the split wood and form it into a piece of furniture or sculpture that are one off creations. This is done by the axe; shave horse, drawknife and spoke shave tools.
The end result is a combination of creativity, a deep understanding of wood and the craftsmanship skills to create truly beautiful functional and decorative items.
