Camille Rust works primarily in wood; initially
making mirrors from driftwood found along the
shores of N.E. Scotland. Following her passion,
she trained in furniture making, design and
restoration at Chippendale School of Furniture
near Edinburgh where she still rents a workbench
today, thus dividing her time between her home in
Aberdeenshire and Edinburgh.
Inspired by the natural beauty of wood, especially
weathered and spalted hardwoods, Camille produces
a range of decorative hanging birds and fish.Her
quirky sense of style has led her to also produce
a range of sculpted, standing birds, many with
copper (a lucky skip find), legs and fish bone
coat hooks which are the ultimate fish hook.
Not bearing to throw even the smallest of scraps
of wood away Camille has created a range of block
work pieces, from end-grain hardwood chopping
boards to boxes complete with wooden hinges. She
also creates larger items of furniture.
