Dennis Hales is a professional turner who works with locally grown sycamore, holly, ash and maple. The white woods offer a natural canvas on which he incorporates a wide range of finishing techniques. He uses turned, carved, textured surfaces, finished with water soluble dyes and metal leaf, to enhance the natural features of the wood whilst achieving a sympathetic balance of form and finish.
Dennis’s work includes fruit displays, Sycamore bowls embellished with silver leaf and wall plates of ash and copper.
