Steve Halton – Wood Artist
A love of wood and woodworking has always been an important part of Steve’s life. Over the years he has made pieces of furniture, fitted out the interior of an ocean-going yacht and taught woodcraft skills at a centre for further education.
He started making fine hardwood boxes twelve years ago in North Yorkshire using a variety of English and European timbers. Since moving to Marlborough in 2009 he has been exploring New Zealand and Australian native timbers in his work.
His fascination for creating boxes and wall art continues to evolve, exploring design and form but always allowing the natural beauty of the wood to be fully appreciated. Most of his timber is recycled, rescued or from storm damaged trees found locally.
Steve has exhibited his work in galleries throughout New Zealand.
