Living with a woodworker and craftsman has opened my world to the sculptural wonder of timber. In the cache of heroes is David Trubridge — internationally acclaimed designer and maker. Trubridge is an inspiring and enviable guy. He's a self-taught furniture maker with a degree in Naval Architecture (boat design). He designed and built his own house, but only after sailing around the world for 5 years on a yacht with his family. He exhibits, curates, teaches, and travels internationally, while also running a design partnership, Cicada Works, and student design studio, Cicada Studios.
