The photos below are the work of Marcus Sly in Wales.

Marcus says of his work:
I limit my use of machinery. Much of the work is done by hand and by eye. Work made like this has a sense of presence and "soul" which is generally lacking in mass produced items. The difference between the feel and character of something handmade and something which has been mass produced is startling; handmade things help us to create beautiful, soulful and inspiring places in which to live, work and dream.
More can be found on his website: Handmade Furniture by Marcus Sly.

  1. this is a handsome piece of furniture! Although it has been hand-made with so much tradition in the process, it has a very sleek and modern feel to it.

    I like that kind of intellectual contrast in work.
