Bobby Mills understands his work to be a collaboration with nature as he directly responds to the fundamental grain structures and character of each piece of wood he works with. He is guided by both the wood and his hands as he reads and explores the centuries of growth in an attempt to unearth what the wood wants to be; a bench perhaps, or a delicately carved vessel.

Mills’ furniture pieces and other wooden objects explore the relationships that exist between human-centred design and nature-centred design as he seeks to celebrate the inherent natural beauty, complexity, and unique qualities of each piece of wood he works.
