Having grown up around Gordonvale, Wes & his wife moved up to Peeramon in recent years, where his workshop overlooks the stunning Tableland views that inspire and motivate his work.
His collection of work includes both small and large items from timber key rings and pens through to trinket boxes, vases, bowl
s, lamps, and platters. He also enjoys making one-off creative pieces for private collections and creating hollow forms and large signature platters for clients who are seeking something different and unique. He has many pieces in private galleries throughout the world including England, United Kingdom, France, Canada, USA, Poland and Slovakia.
He loves sourcing and collecting a wide variety of timber from paddocks and timber mills all over the north and especially delights in working with Western Queensland timber, such as Purple Gidgee, Red Lancewood, Conkerberry and Queensland Ebony, due to the variety of rich colours and intricate grain patterns they display. Each piece of these amazing timbers, almost ask to be turned in specific ways, to highlight their own natural features and characteristics leading to stunning and unique works of art.
