Angus is best known for exquisite, sculptural furniture with a sense of dynamism and flow. He has been innovating with wood for almost thirty years but he remains curious about the possibilities of solid wood. His studio-workshop in Aberfeldy, Perthshire has be in continuous use for woodwork since 1886. Timber is sourced from a beautiful collectively owned bluebell wood five miles away. Angus fells and mills a few trees each year to improve the biodiversity and overall health of the woodland and this supply of small section, characterful, richly coloured oak led to a deep exploration of steam-bending which is now his signature process.
Angus has a background in design and most furniture is made to commission for private collectors and public bodies including the National Trust, Historic Environment Scotland and museums, churches, art galleries across the UK.
