My name is Chas Field and I am Artisan Pens UK.
I have always loved making things. From Airfix models when I was a child and stripping down/rebuilding motorcycles and cars in my teens and early 20's
I got into wood turning as a way of making wooden bowls for re-enactment. After seeing a pen making demonstration I decided to give it a go. As soon as I started I couldn’t stop, I had got the bug. It is so enjoyable to see a piece of plain wood develop in to a finished pen that tactile and pleasing to the eye, that you know someone is going to cherish.
I make pens and other turned items as a hobby. I have sold some of the pens I make and have made others for commissions.
My other pastimes / hobbies are Viking reenactment and green woodworking. I am a group leader witin The Vikings, Britains largest and oldest Dark Age reenactment society. I am also a member of the Association of Polelathe Turners & Greenwood Workers
For the last nine years my 9-5 job is working for a company that makes building energy management systems (BEMS) and Combined Heat & Power (CHP) units.
