One of my favorite magazines, The Shed, has introduced me to some amazing people over the years.
Here we have Bill Blair from Coppice Crafts of Oamaru creating his amazing Trugs.
Bill manages a coppice of Willow trees in the Waitaki Valley, carefully selecting his wood before drying and cutting with his hand crafted tools.
The Shed magazine asked me to photograph the process from start to finish for their monthly magazine.
I worked closely with local writer Nathalie Brown to photograph the steps required to create a Trug from start to finish.
We have 3 more articles for The Shed planned over the coming months.
