Coming: A conversation with Rohan
"I was always interested in the bush, woodlands, and forests as a kid, and I’ve also always been interested in the stories and mythologies that surround trees. That gradually developed into an interest in wood itself, and particularly in the properties of different woods. I love that 2,000 years ago people had realised that they could use birch for spoons, alder for bowls, ash and elm for wheels, yew for bows, linden for shields, sweet chestnut for chair legs, and oak for the chair top, because the properties of the wood suited those uses perfectly. Understanding and making use of the properties of wood like this is something I aspire to. "
