Alice grew up in Dorset where she was given the freedom to pursue creative interests from an early age. University and her career took her to Manchester and London later returning to her home land Dorset to establish the business. The studio and wood barn are nestled in a beautiful wooded area looking out to Eggardon Hill across the rolling West Dorset countryside. It is this environment that provides not just the inspiration for her work but the raw materials too.
She developed her craft working for a joinery firm by day and making furniture by night. She started to undertake commissions in 2010 and soon after opened her studio and Alice Blogg Ltd. ‘Establishing my business in West Dorset, providing employment, working with a community to create the products of my imagination clients will live with for a lifetime is the fulfilment of a dream’.
Knowing the origin of the timber, bringing out its beauty, letting the timber sing – this intimate understanding of the material, often found literally at her feet, is Alice’s life.
