Jon Warnes works with wood, usually native to Suffolk and as local as possible - preferably freshly cut. He carves and turns bowls, eating implements and makes a range of furniture for indoors and outdoors. He is currently working on a new range of “wild bowls”, where the form is suggested by the raw state of the wood and defects appreciated as the character of the tree’s lifetime, not hidden but celebrated.
- I focus on furniture and outdoor seating using native woods, preferably local. I also make turned wooden vessels and am currently working on very thin walled cherry vessels.
