Angus Ross

Aberfeldy-based furniture designer Angus Ross was invited to show his frame rocker, left, at the prestigious Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional trade fair at London’s Somerset House last month. He took a new version, in ash, to highlight the threat to this attractive native hardwood. It is thought that the UK might lose 90% of its ash trees within the next decade.
