Sebastian has been highly recognised for using the ancient technique of coppicing. By cutting and managing trees in this way provides an abundant source of timber, as well as creating a healthy and diverse woodland. He creates products that are simple in form, functional, unobtrusive, lightweight and durable. His work also shows a strong connection with the making process through visible joints, and honest construction. Manufacturing each piece by hand, his designs are mostly developed at the workbench rather than on a CAD program.
