"My designs come about through experimentation; through getting a piece of cardboard or a piece of thin plywood, manipulating it into a form that I tike and developing that into a piece of furniture. My aim within that is to be original as far as I can be. as aware as I am of what has gone before. I aim not to repeat but to innovate ‘

Подпись:Of all the furniture designer-makers who have started and remained successfully in business over the last twenty years, it would not be a gross exaggeration to state that the bulk of them were trained at Parnham College under the guidance of its principal Robert Ingham. Robert’s exacting standards and patient guidance have been a major influence on a string of graduates that are now the backbone of the British designer­making industry. After twenty years at Parnham, creating furniture as and when his commitments would allow, Robert has now settled in a beautiful valley in North Wales designing and making furniture full time.
