Wood and Woven

Alex has been making things his whole life and practices a simple, honest approach to design. He believes that objects made by machines are products of the brain and that those crafted by hand are 'children of the heart'. Each item he weaves or carves from wood is handmade with patience, time and care producing unique, beautiful and utilitarian items.

Alex also collaborates with design studios who produce one - off ceramic pieces with hand carved stoppers. The story of Wood and Woven begins with simple yet beautiful hand made items and continues as the products are used, smoothed by the hand as they scoop and stir.
