Celtica Kitchens Team: design, project management, installation

Cameron Pyke, Designer and Proprietor

Many years ago I was a teacher. A dominant strand of design and craftsmanship runs in the family DNA. The overpowering urge to make things won out and I retrained as a woodworker.

I’ve made all kinds of furniture but especially kitchen cabinetry and dressers. In the early days it was very much ‘hands on’ – I would often install the cabinets that I myself had built in the workshop. Nowadays my role is mostly design – I drive a computer whilst the excellent workshop team do the making. Crucially, my design work is informed by many years practical experience – a huge advantage I have over most retail kitchen designers. This means I often go to site to supervise and assist in complex installations.

Emma Bryant, Designer and Projects Director

Emma Bryant has a BA in Interior Architecture and an MSc in Computer Aided Architectural Design with experience of public, corporate and domestic projects. Emma joined Celtica Kitchens in 2014 as a CAD technician developing computer visuals of our kitchen designs. She is immensely capable and hardworking and was soon producing her own excellent designs.

 

Emma is a fine designer with sensitivity of line and proportion that shows itself in her other work in graphics and stationery. She has added laser cutting as an extra dimension to Celtica’s manufacturing capabilities. This process can add beautiful decorative detail to our furniture.
