JASON HART

WOODWORK TO TREASURE

Jason makes a welcome return with his new solo exhibition.

Jason is passionate about working with wood and sharing the joy with others. He has a natural affinity and a practical connection to wood. Jason works with logs from fallen trees, often with historical heritage sourced locally, seeking out ones that are suitable for crafting bowls, furniture and large sculptures.

He stores the wood for two years before selecting the most adept piece for a particular project he has in mind. In many cases Jason knows the historical heritage of the wood and this becomes an integral part of the end process.

Every piece of wood Jason crafts becomes a one-off work of art, carefully paring and refining the shape and surface of the wood which is then beautiful polished and transformed into a desirable object. The process is slow and methodical and reflects Jason’s many years of learning, his passion and practice in the art and craft of woodturning.

A hand-crafted bowl is a work of art that reveals the beauty of wood better than any other shape. The tactile quality sits comfortably in a traditional or contemporary setting and can be both useful and decorative.

 

Jason has generously donated one of his pieces for our fundraising Christmas raffle - don’t forget to enter as you could be the lucky winner!
