Graham Dubber, Woodturner
I have been a wood turner for many years and see wood as an art form. My father was a shipwright and so I grew up with wood in my veins. After a twenty two year career in the Army, followed by a career as a technical publications manager, I retired from full time employment in 2000. I ran a technical publications consultancy for a couple of years, specialising in graphic design and now concentrate on my woodturning when not away cruising.
I have tried many other art forms, four years of pottery and currently seven years as a glassblower; the one thing I can’t do is paint, although my attempt at Chinese painting did produce pleasing results. In all my artistic ventures I always strive to obtain a quality finish as can be seen from my wood turnings.
I only use sustainable wood sources, even if they are exotic hardwoods and believe in producing quality items that everyone can buy and enjo. Wood is very tactile and needs to be handled as part of the process of enjoying it, so please ask to handle any of my work. I am very proud to be able to share my passion for wood with anyone who purchases a piece of my work. I do take commissions, where viable, dependant on the availability of timber, required timeframe and my being available.
