Originally trained at Chelsea College of Art as a Public Artist, Joel Parkes has established a studio to produce sculptural artworks and forms for the home and gallery spaces.

To create his collection of vessels he uses either dead or fallen trees, diseased or aged that would most likely end up in a bonfire. He hand carves the wood into vessel forms incorporating metals and colours, accentuating the wood grain.
