Christopher Goodhand

Thinking of myself as an artist has always seemed strange, perhaps even uncomfortable. Unlike a painter, for example, much of the work I produce has a functional purpose although on every piece I take great care to ensure it is tactile and pleasing to the eye and so, perhaps, also qualifies as a piece of art.

Without a pleasing shape, the effects of mastered technique, fine finish and even the beauty of the wood itself are diminished or lost altogether. Where possible I will try and incorporate nature’s imperfections (knots, bark inclusion, decay, etc) into my work and always, above all else, my goal is the perfect shape.
