I'm Anna, a multi-disciplinary designer/maker, from Yorkshire, currently based in Glasgow. I produce simple and playful homeware and products with a nod to classic Scandinavian and Japanese styles. Following a family tradition of woodworking, I found my love for woodturning, a process that has informed a lot of my practice.
