Based in rural mid Wales, the majority of my pieces are made from local wood.
Everything is made by me, from design to finishing.

All the wood has had a previous life, from foraged in the woods to recycled tables.
If you would like something making please drop me an email.

Commissions
Happy to take commissions, have created lots of unique pieces for folks, including personalised oak boards, name plaques, giant candlesticks, seriously big bowls, mobile phone stands, wedding cake stands and even a pair of 70cm high antlers.  If it can be made, it can be made from wood.

Just about anything can be made from wood



Wood is a  wonderful thing .... the eye of the dragon!

It all began with a big gnarly burl ..

So, we discussed, and we agreed, that the burl would be turned. ... and here it is .. finally!
6" deep by 10" wide
It has now gone to it's new home at a Hospice. 

530mm wide x 35mm deep, ash bowl with food safe finish £125

530mm wide x 35mm deep, ash bowl with food safe finish £125

Created from local ash, this is one of the biggest bowls I have turned to date; quite a challenge, but the wood is beautiful.

Before and after; an elm  great big 400mm wide bowl with a pippin oak base. Took a while as it is a very dry piece of wood and needed stabalising with resin, hence you can see the splits in the wood.  The dark heart is part of the bowl, with a stunning grain. You never know quite what you are going to find when you start turning.

My wood art is created from local wood, each unique piece designed by myself (Gill), hand crafted and hand finished (no computer cutting here!). Every candlestick is made from reclaimed wood, some collected while walking the dogs, some pinched from the firewood pile and Powys oak. I also create oak platters and salad bowls, fruit bowls, candelabras, dragons, cheese and bread boards and other wood designs. If you would like a piece creating, please email with your enquiry. 

Recent commissions include large mango bowl made from a recycled mango table, an enormous fruit bowl made from old block oak worktop, a 52″ live edge grazing platter, oak drinking cups, football club crests and Welsh dragons. Each piece is unique, hand made and hand finished.
All the wood art is for sale, call or email penllysbach@gmail.com. Don't forget, if you cannot see what you would like I can always make it!
