David Cousley


All David’s work is carved from solid wood - the smaller pieces using knives, and the larger, a progression of tools from chainsaw, axe, and draw knife to spokeshaves, gouges and chisels as the work becomes ever more refined and close to the intended form.


David Cousley is an artist & woodworker based in Co. Monaghan. He makes furniture & sculptural wooden objects which explore the simplicity of line & form. Folk art & vernacular woodcraft are an inspiration, & have a direct relationship to his work as a contemporary maker. Each piece is directly turned or carved from a block of unseasoned wood. This is sourced locally from storm-damaged or wind-fallen trees.
