Alan Walker is an award winning wood worker who lives and works in the Canberra region. He primarily makes and designs small furniture pieces and boxes. Occasionally he undertakes larger furniture projects and whimsical items that explore form and convention.
The philosophy behind his approach to fine woodwork comes from the creative problem solving challenges that were inherent in his previous career as an engineer and economist. Alan see's design and its translation into fine woodwork as continually evolving and complementary features of his work.
In March 2005 one of his boxes containing glassware by Peter Crisp was presented to Princess Mary of Denmark by the National Museum of Australia.
In February 2006 two of his boxes containing glass dinner settings by Peter Crisp were presented to HRH Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
