Alasdair Munro

thoughtful design, careful execution

‘Starting with the tree, he searches for character hewn by the weather and formed from the local landscape. Minerals drawn up by roots deep within Highland soil colour the timber in unique ways as it grows slowly, sometimes for generations, often only to be revealed when the wood is finally worked. Far removed from the shelter and straight lines of mono forestry, these trees also twist and bend as they battle over a lifetime with the forces of nature.'

 

A former surgeon, Alasdair has been creating domestic furniture since he retired.  His aim is to make beautiful, thoughtfully designed and carefully crafted items from timber, in particular Highland grown hardwoods.  We are delighted to present a range of Alasdair’s furniture which can be seen, bought and commissioned from the Gallery.
