About Time Design

I decided to start About Time Design when I retired from my role as a Design and Technology teacher of 25 years.

My first real job was making sundials (that’s how old I am!) and I have long been involved in manufacturing industries, working with a wide range of materials from bronze and GRP, to wood and concrete. My passion is for Three Dimensional Art and I have been sculpting and casting my work for 40 years. I strongly believe that the best product design involves simplicity and the ethical use of beautiful traditional and new materials.

Located near Tattenhall in Cheshire, at About Time Design we are makers of elegant, high quality handmade lifestyle products utilising a range of materials from pine and oak, to Jesmonite. Products range from clocks, pots and storage trays to soap dishes, incense burners and jewellery storage.

All of our products are hand made or hand crafted, they are one of a kind creations and not factory manufactured. We believe this is something to celebrate as it contributes to a unique, “one-off” buying experience. I mainly sell on Etsy where you will find over 500 5* reviews praising the quality of my products and my customer service.
