Henry Williams graduated from Plymouth University in 2012 with a BA (Hons) in 3D design, where he became fascinated by the art of steam bending wood. The skills he picked up at university led him to win the Public’s Choice Award at the New Forest Trust Fine Crafted Wood Competition with a steam bent oak bench in 2011.
After leaving University, he launched Henry Williams Design and has expanded his skill set beyond making bespoke furniture, and is now making oak doors, gates and windows for listed buildings in Sussex.
Henry’s inspiration for his unique style and work comes from the rural surroundings in which he grew up. An advocate of sustainably sourced materials and local businesses, he always tries to use the best of local materials from the surrounding areas.
