  • Carol Russell

Carol Russell is a leader in the field of wood crafting. Her authentic approach to creating timber objects carries with it the story of the tree it came from. Every tiny piece of wood is unique and its form determines the curves and twists that she carves. After many years of making furniture and using machinery to tame the wood and create sharp straight joints, Carol became drawn to simple hand tools such as carving chisels, knives and spoke shaves. Carol is very passionate about her work and her philosophy of salvaging material and offcuts from furniture makers, where possible and has no desire to see a tree cut down on her behalf.
