Designer-maker Tony Docherty runs his growing practice from the beautiful region of Western Australia’s south coast in Denmark. Since the early nineties Tony has supplied leading wood galleries in Western Australia and the eastern states. A keen interest in exploring effective methods for sustainable and efficient use of materials is an important characteristic of Tony’s design approach. His distinctive organic forms express a fascination with the interplay between design process and the material’s inherent features. Tony acquires wood through diverse sources: farms old disused buildings and bridges and sustainable milling. His wood sources are predominately Red Tingle Sheoak Jarrah and Marri. He also has small amounts of wood sourced from the semi arid regions of WA such as Jam Blackbutt and Mulga.
