The Globe Theatre


Exhibitions & Commissions

In 1994 Gudrun won a substantial contract to pole lathe turn 500 green oak balusters for Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in South London. She completed the work in 1996, and has been concentrating on smaller commissions since.

Since 1992 Gudrun has made and exhibited an acclaimed range of contemporary sculptural furniture.

Locally sourced oak, ash, yew, walnut and other fruitwoods are worked by hand and eye into site specific and unique pieces.

Each commission is discussed in detail with the client and it then takes nine to twelve months to complete a very individual piece from the chosen timber.

The pieces sell as far as Japan or as locally as descendants of "Arts & Crafts" chairmaker Philip Clissett who lived and worked opposite Gudrun's workshop.
