In the beginning was a light bulb…

My creative streak which up until 1997 manifested itself variously: Music, doodling on jackets and skin, making boxes etc. was given a focus in lamp making.

Searching for inspiration from all avenues, the decorative flourishes I had applied in small doses using a drill, expanded..

Soon taking over from fretwork entirely until all the decorative design was done with the drill.

The first Drillwork pieces were these column lamps made in veneered or painted board. Inspiration came from my travels, a merging of influences ethnic, traditional and abstract and the idea that looking at the lamp should be more like looking through a backlit screen or a window into the space behind.
