Alun Heslop
Alun Heslop studied at Rochester, gaining a BTEC Diploma in Spatial (Interior) Design, and then went on to Brighton (1991-1994), graduating in Fine Art. Alun rapidly developed an interest in the art & craft of chair making, primarily with the use of green wood, and established himself as an artist/craftsman in 1997. During time abroad in Switzerland, Alun developed a further ongoing interest in seating ergonomics & refinement in chair design & performance. Since returning from Switzerland in early 2006, Alun has produced seating and sculptures for a number of public and private clients, including seating  installations for The RHS, Royal Botanic Gardens & the North Downs Way national trail (KCC). Recent public works include the exterior & interior gallery seating for the Marks Barfield designed Lightbox Gallery, winner of the 2008 Art Fund Prize and a fantastic private commission for a  8.5 m sinuous curving Sleeping Dragon bench which won the prestigious furniture section of the 2008 Wood Awards.

Prices for Alun’s pieces start at £600.
