'THE LAMP MAN'

Australian trees have played a large role in my life.

 

In Northeast Victoria, I built then operated a nursery propagating millions of seedlings for farm forestry and revegetation.

 

It was farm forestry and its timbers that were my first passion. Now in Queensland, I am working with wood from species I grew in abundance – Spotted Gum, Red Ironbark, Sydney Blue Gum and Rose Gum  – all recycled and native to this region - along with indigenous species that I was not familiar with, Tallowwood being an outstanding example.  

 

Timbers which I use can vary from deeply weathered and rustic to demolition hardwoods which I dress to bring out the beautiful colour tones and and grains.

 

My lamps are certainly different!  Customers often describe them as “quirky”, “unusual”, "brilliant” and most notably say " I have never seen anything like these before".

 

There are also other accolades such as “beautiful”, “great” and "fabulous".

 

It is a pleasure making the lamps and even more, a pleasure seeing the delight of my customers in their purchases.
