Robin Clarke says
"Making chairs has always given me a great satisfaction. Each one has an individual character they have arms, legs, backs and bottoms just like people and take on a peculiarly human personality especially when made by one person from start to finish.
Chairs have to take a lot of beating, people fall into them, drop into them, stand on them, and rock backwards on them; so I know from experience how to make the joints strong and resilient and how to choose the right timber to resist such abuse. To make them at the same time beautiful and comfortable is my satisfaction."
