Dennis works with locally grown sycamore, holly, ash and maple. These woods offer a natural canvas on which to incorporate a wide range of finishing techniques. Turned, carved, textured surfaces finished with water soluble dyes and metal leaf are used to enhance the natural features of the wood whilst achieving a sympathetic balance of form and finish. His work includes fruit displays, Bowls are often embellished with silver, copper or gold leaf. As well as being a brilliant wood turner Dennis is also a distinguished photographer.
