Alexander Devol has been making things his whole life but the materials he finds himself most at home with seem to always be wooden or woven. The creator of Wood + Woven, Alex works from studio in North West England where he handcrafts a wonderful selection of wooden pieces.
After a career as a menswear designer, Alex turned his attention away from mass production and toward the hand made. With a focus on a simple and honest approach to design and the aim of creating pieces where both aesthetics and utility are ingrained, Alex’s work brings new life and pleasure to the everyday.
All pieces are hand made using traditional turning and carving techniques and all materials are locally grown, recycled or sourced from sustainable sources.
Devol – “Machine made things are children of the brain, while hand made things are children of the heart.”
