Working with Simon is a real partnership. He has skills to manufacture to an incredibly high standard combined with a rare intelligence to understand and intuit what outcome is needed. As an Artist, I need to make objects involving unusual materials or techniques that have never been used before. Simon has been able to work with me to devise new processes and techniques, often to very tight deadlines, and still produce a finished product that has the finish and longevity to enter a museum collection. Simon's background in Fine Art allows him to use his skill and knowledge of materials as a creative tool, and his generous nature opens this expertise to others.
