How important is sustainability to you and if so how does that guide you when developing new pieces?
When I started I had 2 motivations, 1. to do something environmentally friendly, and 2, to be involved in the creative process from start to finish. Originally I used only recycled timber, I now use new timber as well. Any new timber we procure is carefully checked as to its origin. We don’t use old growth timbers that should not be harvested or rainforest timbers.
What did starting a business from scratch teach you?
I’ve had to learn new skills as the business has grown. Starting from scratch on such a small scale and growing to where we are now has taught me to adapt and be flexible. Learning from mistakes and asking for advice has been a vital lesson. I often find the smarter people are, the more likley they are to share knowledge. It’s amazing how people will support you if you get off your bum and have a go!
