Nick and Ned Hamond in the old workshop

Nick Hamond

Handcrafted furniture in a wide range of modern and reclaimed woods.

A third-generation furniture maker, I have been making for twenty years and adhere to the three-phase system of apprentice, journeyman and master carpenter. I am now in my journeyman phase. There is a strong tradition of building and seafaring in my family and, like my predecessors, I marry my work to its environment. I delight in function, form and material, taking my inspiration from my surroundings, history and imagination. My work is extremely varied, from sculpture to houseboats to traditional furniture. I grew up surrounded by Old English oak furniture and developed an affinity with strong, simple design, where the material is humble and yet possesses pattern and colour as magical as any. My work and techniques are ever evolving and I try to encourage individuality in each piece.
