Biography

In the twenty years since Walter set up the studio – joined by Paul Channing in 2000 – we have developed a very wide range of ideas, across all sorts of media. We are makers of things (as well as ideas) and stay hands-on with the making process right through to the finish. We have a particular interest in transformation – forms that change shape in use and over time. And we are interested in craft – and innovation with making processes. We like places to be more surprising. We collaborate with architects and landscape architects, engineers, laser-cutters and concreters! Our clients include local authorities and developers, schools, hospitals and communities. We also act in Lead Artist and Consultant roles. Walter is a Crafts Council Selected Maker.
