Tim Soutar

Tim draws his inspiration from living and working in the coastal environment. He creates turnings that have wonderful shape, texture and patterns. He loves to work with burls and wood with extravagant grain. Tim’s passion for patterns leads him to create pieces influenced by nature. Simple spheres become worlds inhabited by his imagination. Green wood, turned thin, bends with it’s own forces as it dries, in a collaboration with nature. He also creates beautiful bowls and platters from a variety of native woods. A fine craftsman, all of Tim’s turnings have a wonderful feel in your hand.
