Edward Wild

Following in the tradition of fine English furniture, Edward Wild creates bespoke handmade furniture in a clean simple style.  Combining contemporary design, skilled craftsmanship and the finest materials, each piece is finished with an attention to detail making it unique.

Ranging from dining, lounge and bedroom furniture to intimate jewellery and occasional boxes, these custom-made pieces are designed to endure changing fashions.

Winner of the Wesley-Barrell Craft Award for Furniture 2014 Edward is based in Devon and is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen where his work is exhibited alongside a number of other select U.K galleries.  His passion for quality craftsmanship includes the design and making of furniture alongside the sourcing of interesting and beautiful woods.

Edwards’s interest in furniture design and quality craftsmanship developed at an early age whilst watching his grandfather in his furniture workshop.  He later inherited his grandfathers’ tools which he now uses daily.  He made his first substantial pieces; in his early teens and  later trained with the prominent furniture designer/maker David Savage, where Edward now teaches a number of specialist courses at the David Savage Furniture School.

Edward Likes to work with trees and timber which have unusual characteristics, such as damson wood with its purple streaking, or spindle wood with its bright lemon colour. Edwards’s brother is in the forestry industry, making it possible to select timber from a standing tree to a sawn log, and finally making it into a piece of furniture.

Edward makes one off commissions as well as a range of studio pieces including his selection of jewellery and occasional boxes, each of which is inlayed with his trademark flower.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 1 day we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
