Tai Chi

For the past twenty years Tai Chi has been at the centre of my design philosophy, and making. Every hammer mark each motion of sanding, filing and soldering through each stage is carefully considered. Yet not rigid and stiff, but flowing moving in harmony from the centre of my being, making the work sing, and audible expression to share how the metal has energy. Even today I am amazed how Tai Chi fundamentals continue to be an integral part of not only my designs but the way I run all aspects of my business, and life.

I am fortunate to be able to pass on my skills, and knowledge, as a visiting Lecturer at Sir John Cass Metropolitan University teaching Silversmithing techniques.

IMoving to Devon the west country, is back to where I studied and qualified as a tai chi teacher,some twenty years ago, and I will run classes in the village and teach the fundamental exercises, on a donation basis, something that I have been wanting to do for sometime, so if there are any of you wanting to learn the fundamentals of Tai Chi and Chi Kung exercises, then do get in touch.
