“I am continually trying to strip back my work, making it as simple and honest as I can. Finding a way to connect, to belong to a place and to remind people to think about their environment, their place, the space they live in. Making, for me is a way of documenting my relationship with Tasmania and its wild places – of capturing the wildness that I love, and the wonderment that it conjures in me.
There is an underlying fear of the unknown, which draws me into it repeatedly, building anticipation, and holding me in its isolation. I try to make my work as sustainable as I can, using local materials and non-toxic finishes. I make work for production and as one-off pieces. I build things to last and hopefully something you will cherish for the rest of your life.” Stuart Williams, 2015.
