Matt Jones, the acclaimed wood turner artist, designs beautiful handmade wooden items for the home. Matt only uses ethically sourced Irish wood such as fallen beech, walnut, ash and oak trees to make his collection of handmade salad bowls, salt mills, pepper grinders, commissioned items and sculptural art pieces. He works from his workshop based in County Sligo, the West of Ireland surrounded by hills, woods and the wild Atlantic sea. This dramatic landscape plays a major part in Matt’s work.
Matt brings an artistic and creative aspect to his work having studied painting at Chelsea College of Art, London. In 2005 he moved to Riverstown Village with his wife Imelda and their children to renovate a former outbuilding into the family home. A workshop soon followed and he began his wood turning journey through a self-taught apprenticeship. In 2009 he started turning full-time and his business has evolved into a family run enterprise.
Matt’s art school trained artistic eye brings a unique approach to the craft of wood turning. His handmade wooden giftware and tableware products are both functional whilst at the same time being aesthetically pleasing art pieces in their own right.
