Forge Creative is a creative design studio situated in rural Sussex and is the partnership of friends and designer-makers Josh and Oli. They founded the company in 2013 with an ambition to put their creative skills to something meaningful. Inspired design, materials responsibly sourced and superior hand-crafted products. Driven not by money but the goal of fulfilment in a day to day job. Since then Josh and Oli have developed their own range of furniture and objects.
Experimenting with small wooden off-cuts, Josh and Oli began making simple tree-like forms that developed into more intricate interpretations as their skills grew.
"It all starts with an appreciation for the natural beauty of wood. If you're like us, then you may have the tendency to collect natural objects like shells, pine cones or fossils and take them home to put on display. Wood isn't always pocket-sized and refined like these items but after a little work on the lathe, you end up with this perfectly, formed, solid piece of wood that is both tactile and visually pleasing from every angle."
The Trees are a celebration of the natural beauty of timber and an outlet of creativity. Each Tree is unique and beautiful in its own way.
