Gary Allson’s work is inspired by observations and insights into daily living. His innovation is to generate solutions that are born out of a particular place. The materials and techniques used to create work are intentionally kept simple in order to maintain the emphasis on the idea.
His individually hand made wooden bowls, plates and kitchen utensils are suitable for both functional and ornamental use. The work is made in Cornwall, UK, from locally sourced sustainable timber: oak, beech, cherry and ash. Using traditional and digital techniques the work focuses on elemental forms with natural surface finishes and a contemporary identity. The bowls in the top image are made from burnt oak, round cedar, oak and walnut. The kitchen and garden tongs (above) are from burnt oak, beech and cedar.
