Amy Dolan

Furniture designer

'The one thing I don't want to stop doing is being creative.'

Having a job which uses her creativity is very important to Glasgow School of Art graduate Amy Dolan.

So she started her own business, Ziggy Sawdust, to redesign and upcycle pieces of retro and vintage furniture.

In 2013 she won the BT Scotland Young Entrepreneur Award for the Most Environmentally Responsible Business.
