Lucinda Leech

Lucinda LeechLucinda takes a serious environmental interest in the source of her raw materials and to this end has devoted much of her time to travelling extensively to research methods of managing, harvesting and the replanting of forests. This has given her the confidence to use exotic timbers in her work, when she is able to verify the source, and a variety of lesser known timbers to choose from. A young family has slowed Lucinda down a little over the past couple of years, but she is using the time away from the computer and bench to take stock, look at where she is going and to proceed renewed with a fresh approach.

John Makepeace is one of the few British furniture designers to achieve international recognition in his own lifetime, and one of the few in the world whose work commands prices comparable to fine art.

Alone, he has done more to promote public awareness of the British furniture designer – maker industry than any other person or institution. His designs challenge the accepted boundaries and his workshops are continually experimenting to provide the innovative techniques required by these designs.

Lucinda LeechTo attend Parnham College, founded by John Makepeace in 1977, has been the goal of two generations of aspiring makers world-wide and his revolutionaiy experiment in the use of sustainable resources at Hooke Park is planned as a model for forestry and manufacturing in the new millennium.
