Making things makes me happy, in many ways that is bliss enough, but my real accomplishment comes when my work also creates amusement or intrigue for someone else…
CeorfanWorks is the name of my art/design/make studio. I create original art, unusual objects and take commissions from clients, mostly from wood.
To help create my work I use traditional techniques along with computer design and a 3D carving robot (CNC Machine). I post about my work on Twitter and Instagram under @CeorfanWorks and write an occasional journal.
Original Art & OBjects
I aim to make shapes that compliment the woods natural characteristics, shapes that look beautiful and demand to be touched.
Some of the work is purely about form, light and shadow. Other pieces explore human ideas such as belief and absurdity to try and help make sense of our own restless thoughts. I’m also fascinated by making unusual wooden bowls.
My commissions range from reproducing an antique mantelpiece through to the parts for an ornate and very large greenhouse window.
I am happy to create original designs. I can also work to a brief, from a photo or a drawing or even a computer model. I collaborate with a skilled cabinetmaker on many of my projects so we can offer a full range of skills to complete the work.
