Skapa Woodturning

 

My name is Mike Groves, I’m from the Essex countryside where I first discovered my passion for trees. My background is in anthropology and I’m fascinated by the relationship between people and objects. I’m particularly inspired by the design and food cultures of Korea, China and Japan.

All of my woodwork honours the humble tree and the passion I have for them is instilled into everything I create. Staying true to my philosophy of giving trees a second life, I work with sustainably sourced British hardwoods and reclaimed timber.

My bowls are designed to be held comfortably in the hand. This creates a warm, tactile and engaging relationship between body, object and food.
