Sustainable furniture for a more beautiful world

Peter Lanyon is an award-winning furniture maker renowned for combining coppiced, unseasoned wood with other materials.  He champions the use of sustainable, home-grown British hardwoods.  He runs courses from his tranquil workshop in South Devon, and internationally, and exhibits at the best craft fairs in the country.

Peter’s work is a reflection of his love and deep understanding of his chosen material. There is something immediate about cleaving and shaving wood which connects to the subtle and graceful charms of grain. Components are split and rough-shaved before being seasoned for several months. They are then carefully re-worked and “composed” into finished furniture, or lamps. Whenever possible his work is left un-sanded, the tool marks forming facets which catch the light beautifully, and are delightful to the touch. As well as capturing the beauty and essence of the original tree, Peter’s work addresses the need for a sustainable methodology. Far from being a harking back to a bygone day, he finds relevance in the low energy, simple technology of green woodworking. He passes on his passion and skills through his highly-acclaimed courses and community projects. He works from a lovely old farm building by the sea in the glorious South Hams.
