Geoffrey Fisher is an artist, designer and maker who was born in South London and studied Fine Art at Middlesex Polytechnic. It was during this time he first began working in wood by constructing small scale wall pieces contained within glass fronted cabinets. After graduating he established a studio in the emerging community of artists living and working in the former warehouses of the East London and became the assistant to Ivor Abrahams RA.
In the early eighties he relocated to Athens for an extended period where he established himself as designer and maker of furniture and lighting but then returned to London to work in the film industry as a model maker and scenic artist while continuing to make his minimalist wooden constructions in his spare time.
Geoffrey now works from his Buckinghamshire studio. He only uses locally sourced hardwoods that are coppiced as part of an ongoing program of traditional woodland management to maintain a healthy balance of native flora and fauna. The natural qualities of the wood mean that not only is each product unique because of its grain and texture but because of the different soil and climate conditions in a particular locality.
