Craftsmanship Has Never Been So Peaceful In This Devon Studio

The Modern House introduces us to Ambrose, a craftsman who lives and works in Ashburton, Devon. Ambrose knows the trees around him like the back of his hand. His family have owned and nurtured more than 200 acres of land since the 1970s. Never one to fly far from the nest, Ambrose has a sibling-like relationship to the trees that grow there –predominately ash, which is handy as it’s his preferred choice of timber. Now, the 34-year-old keeps busy in his self-built studio, which overlooks the woods that started it all, either by teaching his craft or by using traditional techniques to create contemporary furniture. Watch as he explains his process below.
