"My work is turned from sycamore, stained with water based dyes and handcarved with gouges and then finished with several coats of oil and wax. I choose sycamore because of its paleness and fine texture which makes it perfect for staining and crisp carving. As a tree it is often dismissed as a nuisance because of its slimy leaves and its ability to grow almost anywhere but it produces a lovely lustrous timber which is very pleasant to work. The pieces I make are frequently mistaken for ceramics or metalwork because of my use of colour and the textures I carve into the surfaces."

Peter Archer makes one-off pieces in temperate hardwoods. His vessels and bowls are stained, carved and finely finished using oil and wax. Peter’s work can be seen in galleries and at exhibitions throughout the UK.
