Woodturning Artist – Paul Jones based in
Bollington, near Macclesfield, Cheshire.
I have always felt a close affinity for wood, a relationship that began in my school workshops and has stayed with me ever since. I am now fortunate enough to be able to develop that relationship and explore the creative potential offered by the native hardwoods of the UK.
I have been a full-time Woodturner/Artist since 2007. In that time I have trained with 3 of the UK’s best known and most accomplished turners/artists, Mark Hancock, Tracy Owen and most recently Nick Agar. In 2011 I won a bursary from the Worshipful Company of Turners to further develop my skills, particularly in the area of large diameter and sculptural turnings. These Bursaries are only given out every 2 years and in 2011 only 4 were awarded. I began selling my work in 2008, mainly on private commissions and now exhibit in Galleries throughout the North West.
