ABOUT KRISTY GRAY DESIGNS
Based in the heart of The New Forest, Kristy Gray Designs aims to create beautiful, high quality homeware from locally and sustainably sourced timber.
I am devoted to using timber sourced within The New Forest, with the aim of making my business as minimally damaging to the environment as possible. Growing up and living in The New Forest has given me an inevitable appreciation for the trees around me and how they are treated. Knowing where and who my timber comes from creates an organic relationship between me and the timber which only grows as I transform it into beautiful pieces for your home.
My name is Kristy and I am the person behind Kristy Gray Designs. I graduated Cardiff School of Art and Design in July 2020, where I studied Artist Designer Maker. This course ignited my passion for woodworking and supplied me with the tools and skills to create my own business.
Completing my degree in the midst of the pandemic was a blessing in disguise. It provided me with the time to invest in building my business from the ground up, not that it was without it challenges. After graduating my family and I hand built my workshop and I have begun my journey of having my own woodworking business.
