Idris' bogwood sculpture takes two forms. The first is an intricate interpretation of the ancient timber that has spent as long as 5,000 years submerged in the bog. The sculpting technique carefully preserves the inner 'twisted spirit' and seeks to reveal the natural core, which often takes the shape of mythical birds or beasts. The relief stone carvings of the monastic Celts inspire the second sculptural form; semi stylised figures that flow along the natural lines of the ancient material with which he works.

A native Californian, Steven Goldsmith received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Montana, where he first developed a taste for the rustic furniture designs of the American West. But it is in Ireland’s Heartland, where he settled in 1993, that he created the sculptural approach to woodworking that characterises his craft.

Tanglewood designs utilise the natural forms of branch wood to create chairs and tables that are both beautiful and functional. Design is inspired by the natural shapes of the wood itself, seeking to echo the mystery and majesty of the tree it came from. Although all Tanglewood designs are comfortable and functional, the emphasis is on dramatic design and the harmonious interplay of line and form. More sculpture than carpentry, each piece is a unique work of art.
