Seller Profile – VDHWoodWorks

Dave Vanderhoven

Etsy Shop Name

A bit about my product range
I turn bowls, ornaments, platters, boxes and lamps, mostly from green wood or recycled timber sourced from around the Sheffield area

I started an Etsy shop because…
I wanted to create an on line presence and offer my work to the widest possible audience.

I feel inspired by…
the interaction between philosophy and form and the moment when the possibility of an object emerges from working on the raw material.

When I’m making, I like to listen to…
the sound of wood being cut by sharp Sheffield steel as it turns.

My favourite product to make is…
a wooden bowl where simple curves bring out the best of the grain in the wood.

My plans for the future are…
to continue to push myself and learn as much as possible about making beautiful things in wood.
