James McNaught Profile Information

  • A stack of Chairs outside Lawrence Neale’s workshop in Warwickshire.
To shoot this I had to commandeer a section of road running through the village as it was the only area nearby big enough to accommodate a back drop. Rich and Sam, Lawrence’s apprentices dutifully guarded the precariously balanced chairs and I made polite excuses to surprisingly patient drivers. Typically the wind arrived just at the crucial moment and the background started to buckle.... looks alright innit.

  • Rush seat chair making like it ought to be. Hand made in Stockton by @lawrencejneal.
Shot for @holeandcorner magazine.
Although Lawrence inherited the skill and artistry of rush seat chair making from his father, the skills have in fact been passed by word of mouth and observation from one maker to another through generations of previous chair makers. Never being written down and never deviating bar the signature idiosyncrasies that each craftsman brings to the workbench. It is a secret history known only to those who commit to keeping the skill alive. @marchmonthouse @hugo.burge .
