Growing up, my perception was that work was something you enjoyed and always had a tangible, physical outcome. I studied Product Design during my time at school but left this behind and took any job I could chasing money.

For several years I made furniture in my spare time as well as renovating the house my wife and I lived in. Eventually, I decided I had to set up my own design studio and I've never looked back. This one is really easy; I run a small business and I am super keen to champion other small UK businesses. Not to get too heavy but particularly in the current political and economic climate.
It is now more important than ever that we all rally round and support small businesses and local producers. I'm not just talking about furniture either; farmers, growers, butchers, greengrocers, and independent companies of all kinds. I also believe we have some of the finest materials in the world right on our doorstep. Production processes that have been refined over hundreds of years with generation after generation of whole families dedicated to a craft. I'll give you an example; records for the tannery I source my leather from have been traced back to the Roman times.

It is the last remaining oak bark tannery in the UK whereas there used to be one in every city across the country. Today, they use the same process the Romans did albeit refined.
They sustainably collect oak bark from trees in the Lake District and take it down to the tannery in Devon. Using hides from cattle raised in the West Country they steep the skins in a mixture of the oak bark and water by hand. For 13 months they work the leather and oak bark mix to produce one of the finest and most beautiful leathers in the world.
How can you not be excited to know that we still have these people in the UK, keeping these incredible traditions alive?

However, I take a design-led approach to my studio which means I am not restricted by my own skills and 'materials of choice'. I love exploring the relationship between different materials and my current collection; Full Gain is my most ambitious yet. The aggregation won consecutive titles in and It was a great place to learn; Hill established himself as not only a fine player, but a heady one as well. When he joined the Leland Giants to play under Foster, the manager considered Hill his "field general," often calling the younger man his "second manager.

Foster's career average in black baseball is. He also rapped. In , Foster asked Hill to become the player-manager of the newly formed Detroit Stars.

Hill's career spanned two distinct eras of black baseball: After participating in the great barnstorming teams of the century's first two decades, he was both a player and manager in the early Negro National League years.
