about Wayne Maxwell

.

Designer Wayne Maxwell was born and raised in Southern Africa, following his studies he left to travel and explore the world while learning new skills. His interest has always been tied to the hand crafting techniques utilised by different cultures and unique peoples of the world. 

.

Over the last three decades Wayne has produced work which combines his knowledge of design and the skills of traditional craftsmanship. His belief is that, one cannot design for a craftsman, unless one has the knowledge of how the materials are selected, worked and joined to create the finished product.

.

Wayne is drawn to re-purposed and recycled materials combining these with his keen eye and learned hand crafting skills, to transport these materials into the present time, offering them a new lease of life and minimising waste. 

.

Wayne’s work straddles the fields of design, furniture, sculpture and art. His love of creating with his bare hands is at the heart of all his work, whether it be a lighting installation, bespoke piece of furniture, wire sculpture or a design and build project, you will always find him involved from beginning to end. 

.

The Wayne Maxwell studio is based in the heart of the stunning Cotswold’s, where his pieces are on display in his beautiful showroom (an old converted barn), along side new prototypes in progress and his workshop where his pieces are handmade.
