Delighted with lovely two page article by writer, historian and TV presenter Jonathan Foyle in FT Weekend House and Home this weekend.
“Artisans – A Scot who pines for oak. The Scottish countryside is replete with fir trees yet Angus Ross turns to local oak to craft outdoor furniture”
The feature has a comprehensive overview of Angus’s career path, from designer of plastic domestic products through re-training in fine furniture making and setting up a shared studio in Oxfordshire, to the move to Aberfeldy and developing a practise steam-bending our local oak.
The article mentions two benches made with wood from the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh as part of the After The Storm Project. The Holding Bench for the MS Society (above right) and the one-off Resilience Bench.
The two portraits of Angus are by Robert Ormerod
