Our makers

In a small way, we are hoping to raise the profile of some deeply talented British makers by either simply show casing their work or through direct collaborations.These are highly creative people who work with their hands and eyes, using timeless tools and natural materials to create works of art.


French savoir-faire meets British design.

Following his training as an “ébéniste” at the world-renowned Ecole Boulle,  Kim went on to work with some of the most prestigious ateliers in Paris. Focusing on the creation and restoration of exquisite furniture pieces, Kim used this time to acquire traditional and specialist skills in veneering, marquetry, working with shagreen and parchment, as well as the art of straw marquetry.

From his workshop in London, Kim now designs and makes contemporary pieces.  He creates bespoke standalone furniture as well as smaller objets, including the matchbox sleeves he has designed in collaboration with No Straight Lines, by K&H Design.




A ‘self-taught’ sculptor and artist, Jonathan lives at the foot of the South Downs, within the South Downs National Park.  He is a keen hill runner and walker and is hugely influenced by the Natural World, in particular the geology and history of this spectacular part of Sussex.




35 years ago Louisa used rough, raw clay sourced from her husband’s farm for her degree show at Chelsea School of Art. She has worked in this material ever since. Recently, when digging, she found evidence of stone age people in the form of a carved spearhead buried deep in her clay.

Louisa has showcased her work with the Muse Sculpture at Lucknam Park, Wiltshire, and in the Royal Enclosure, Ascot. She is on the Council of the Society of Portrait Sculptors, with whom she is exhibiting in the Garrison Chapel, Chelsea this August.

“Beliefs have been passed down through storytelling for millennia. They create the bonds that hold society together. By giving stories a physical form, I can be part of a conversation between ancient and modern societies, and even with the future.”



Back in 2008  Tim Ross made his own firepit, then still a new concept in Britain, for a teenage party. Encouraged by the firepit’s warmth and the atmosphere it created, the party-goers carried on until dawn.

Today, Tim and Emma Ross and their team of 18, make all their firepits and outdoor kitchens by hand in their workshops in Monmouthshire.

Highest quality craftsmanship and sustainability remain the core values of the business.  They use high grade, thick British steel and construction methods that mean each item is made to last.
