Spencer creates beautiful functional sculptures from woven, carved and steamed wood. Each product is individually designed and handcrafted. “My work evolves from ideas, hints and suggestions I receive from the landscape around me. I enjoy physically transforming the identity of wood, thin, fragile becomes a dense mass, hardwood, reshaped, thin, light and curved."
Spencer exhibits and regularly runs workshops across the country and has sold work at Sotheby’s Auction, London.
He runs furniture making courses, demonstrations, community events and outdoor school projects, building living willow structures, figures, sculpture, recycled art and landscaping.
Spencer was awarded Highly Commended for his RHS Show Feature at BBC Gardeners World Live 2009 ‘Seed Sitting’, which compromises of two giant leaves sculptured into a woven arbour structure accommodating stunning white willow seats.
