Turner + Turner products showcase the contemporary style and fine woodworking skills of Neil Turner. Neil primarily uses Australian timbers and works in a highly sympathetic way with the material, the natural features of the timber informing the finished piece.
Woven through all of Neil's artwork is a deep respect for the material and the natural forces that have acted upon it. He looks for the quiet ripples eroded in soil by wind, the delicate eddies left by water, and the swirling lick of flames. Observing the subtle interplay of light and shadow, he creates fluid forms from solid wood, working with the material's natural grain direction and pattern, blemishes and voids.
Each piece of West Australian timber tells its own story, and the whole process can take months: from sourcing and drying the timber, to turning and sealing it.
