Paperweight | Curly Jarrah
Designer-maker Tony Docherty has been supplying leading wood galleries in WA and the eastern states since the early nineties, with work ranging from large one-off pieces of furniture to an exquisite range of beautiful home and kitchen wares.
Tony has a keen interest in exploring effective methods for sustainable and efficient use of materials; this is reflected in the wide range of work produced from his workshop – very little wood is considered waste.
Tony acquires wood from many sources including farms, old disused buildings and bridges, and sustainable milling. The timbers used in Tony’s practise include Red Tingle, Sheoak, Jarrah, Marri and Wandoo. He also uses rare woods from the semi-arid regions of WA such as Jam, miniritchi and Mulga.
