I went to an exhibition of crafts, admired a small handmade wood burner & ordered an occasional table!
Intrigued? Well – whilst admiring some extremely good metalwork, I noticed a small wood burner. Far surpassing any that I have previously seen or owned regarding design & quality, George, the highly skilled craftsman, gave me the ‘grand tour’. I had no use for a wood burner but felt unable to depart without exploring all possibilities.
Could it be slightly adapted to be a small free standing table? ‘Yes’ it could.
That was it & I am now the highly delighted owner of one, perfectly suiting my 16th century cottage. It would just as easily suit a modern home. It is much admired by all visitors & words cannot convey the pleasure obtained from owning such a beautifully crafted item…….
