Sculptor: Alex MacMaster
Brief Biography: Alex MacMaster is a designer/maker specialising in wooden lighting and furniture based in Worcestershire. He is inspired by the balance, proportions and forms found in nature and specialises in using sustainably sourced timbers to offer a range of handmade to order pieces. Having studied Furniture design and Making at Lincoln University he then went on to work alongside a master craftsman before setting up his own workshop. The skills he obtained have allowed an understanding of the processes, tolerances and manipulation of timber to create delicate looking pieces with a structural strength not normally associated with the material.
