Alex Phillips | Organic Woodworks

Organicwoodworks was born out of my imagination and passion for natural wood.

In an old sawmill on the outskirts of Bristol in the South West of England, I use hand power-carving tools along with traditional wood working tools passed down from generations to create his organic sculptures. Traditional methods of craftsmanship are employed to make each sculpture and carving. 

Individually hand crafted artwork, each unique piece captures the essence of the wood itself.

Wood is only sourced from native, sustainable and local supplies. 

Only natural oils, beeswax and finishes are used.


Woods include Yew, Ash, Oak, Elm, Walnut, Cherry, Beech, London Plane and Pine. Other timbers subject to availability.

My speciality is sourcing and carving extreme spalted timber, where fungal attack and rot has run riot to create fragile yet spectacular grain patterns.

Hand and power carved bowls to any size and order.
