Meet Art Upmarket Retailer and Timber Craftsman Neil Turner

Art Upmarket retailer and timber craftsman Neil Turner has been crafting wood for over 40 years and is internationally recognised for his fine timber sculptures and furniture.

Central to his creation process is allowing the material to inform the final piece, whether it is the shape or grain of the timber. Every piece reflects his careful consideration of shape, material, functionality and beauty.

In Neil’s own words;

Timber is a living breathing organism that captures my imagination. The opportunity to express thoughts and ideas in a tangible creation that continues to react within it’s environment.

To design and create in timber posses many challenges both in structure and integrity, but the pleasure I derive from my work is simple, a joy and passion to create pieces of work that I like.

Take a look at Neil in action in his workshop – it really it something to behold.
