William and Edward represents an honest and accessible approach to design. As the son of a farmer with deep agricultural roots in rural Northern England “make do and mend” was a way of life for my family. Establishing a sense of place that is small, simple and ultimately fulfilling is what I’m building through my spaces and objects.
The objects I create are all individually handmade at my workshop in Upstate New York. Quality and value is the backbone of what I do, with function informing design. I want to share the things I make to create a simple well lived life. Timeless in design, these items will only improve with age and I hope become among your favourites.
