Neal Crampton

Neal Crampton is a furniture designer and maker based in Ilkley, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

"I produce furniture to contemporary designs. My designs feature clean lines and simple forms that aim to incorporate the natural colour and grain of the wood into the work. This emphasises the natural beauty of the wood and results in an honest and durable piece of furniture. My work does not strive to be trend setting. Instead I aim to design and create pieces of furniture with an integrity that will outlast current fashions. 

My workshop employs techniques both modern and traditional without prejudice. The efficiency of modern machining gives me the freedom to concentrate on the traditional hand tool methods that define and differentiate a piece of fine handmade furniture; hand planed surfaces that invite the touch and traditionally constructed drawers that glide rather than rattle."

"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 6 days 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.
