West Cork Craft and Design Guild - A guide to some of Ireland's finest craftwork.

Alison Ospina - Green Wood Chairs
Alison Ospina

Alison Ospina makes her unique furniture using green, unseasoned hazel, coppiced in West Cork. Her chairs are created in harmony with the raw materials and with an emphasis on presentation of the natural form. Alison's first inspiration was the spare simplicity of 'Shaker' designs, and she applies these principles to much of her work.

'My chairs reflect the grace and beauty of the hazel trees they are made from. They have an elusive quality - it's a kind of magic.'

Green Wood Chairs runs 3-day courses; details available on request.

Visitors to the workshop are welcome by appoint- ment.
