Metalsmith • Green woodworker • Craftsman
Leo Singleton is a craftsman, metalsmith, designer and engineer who has spent most of his adult life problem-solving, making and experimenting always with the aim of achieving a balance between quality of function and aesthetics.
When these primary aspects are in harmony even the simplest of objects, such as a wooden bowl, becomes vibrant and is a pleasure to use.
Leo has developed a keen instinct for form and proportion, and a feel for materials which provides a foundation for his work and informs his designs.
2021 -Message to visitors:
I am currently taking a break from my jewellery/woodwork to support the family business. I do have a few items still available from stock but will not be producing any new pieces until later this year.
Leo lives on Spindlebrook Farm in Devon with his partner Helen.
Having lived in a yurt for years, pursuing a low impact lifestyle, he has developed a keen understanding and appreciation of true sustainability which he applies to his life and work.
I generally make pieces to order but do have some stock from time to time -particularly smaller items such as stools & jewellery. Please get in touch and I can provide further details.
