The Devon Furniture Makers group continues to grow as we welcome two new members, Devon makers James Verner and Richard Donkersley.
Many skilled makers dotted around Devon work in isolated and 'out of the way places' and sometimes find it hard to promote their work individually. The group was established to promote this highly skilled and specialised work and bring recognition to an amazing group of designer makers who mainly work to commission for both private clients and design professionals producing highly crafted pieces using timber and other complementary materials.
James Verner produces pieces for discerning individuals and design professionals as well as creating extraordinary ‘one-offs’ that are free of the constraints limiting conventional furniture.
Richard Donkersley has been designing and making furniture for over 20 years. He has recently moved to a purpose built workshop beside his home on the beautiful Blackdown Hills in Mid Devon and is keen to continue to produce furniture of exceptional quality for his clients.
