About Wood Art By Connal

Working in an 18th Century blacksmiths’ workshop (The ‘Smiddy’), in the beautiful Scottish Borders, I create works of art, using an historical method known as Intarsia.

Having experimented with many types of woodwork, I found and instantly fell in love with Intarsia. The challenge of the cutting; the satisfaction in the shaping and fitting; the joy when the colours ‘pop’ on the application of the finishing treatment; and the pride in my creation when hanging on a wall, giving pleasure to its new owners.
