Ron Noble is an artistic wood carver and furniture designer who was born in northern Scotland. His love for Scotland inspired him to work along side nature itself using a variety of exotic wood, such as ebony, black boy, and manzanita as well as native elm, beech and oak. His true passion lies with the Scottish burr elm, which dramatically compliments his artistic flair. He is able to bring out the natural beauty that you will see in his hand made wooden tables, bowls, mushrooms, fruit, candle holders, sculptures, chests and other pieces.
Today the finest burr elm is found only in Scotland. The burr that you will see has taken at least 200 years to mature to this quality.
All the wood that Ron uses is from naturally dead trees. No live trees are cut for his work. The burr woods that Ron uses are becoming rare. The opportunity to work these woods and the chance to own items made from these woods is unfortunately disappearing.
