Kevin Hutson

Kevin's experience with wood turning was 25 years ago with a small modest drill attachment lathe. He was completely enthralled by the different shapes and configurations that could be achieved, he progressed from this lathe onto a larger and more professional machine.

Kevin served a five year apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery at The Brighton Technical College successfully passing both City and Guilds and the Advanced City and Guilds examinations. After 16 years practical experience he progressed as a freelance draughtsman in architecturally designed joinery manufacture. Kevin found this experience inspired his designing for the more creative forms.

Having turned conventional shapes for a period of time Kevin found the need to advance towards more aesthetic shapes. He now blends subtle tones of colour to emphasis the variety of grain found in wood. Each piece is finished by a process of a mixture of natural oils such as Danish Oil and Liquid Paraffin over a period of three days.
