Jon Bayes is a modern and heritage joiner, wood carver and maker, working predominantly with English hardwoods.

The aim of Bayes’ work is to retain the strength, ruggedness and beauty of the oak tree when finished, often hand-tool marks remain to reflect the course texture of the tree’s bark, which is in direct contrast with smooth areas to allow the figure and grain to be more pronounced.

 

Bayes describes how he can be an ‘artisan making functional pieces and then an artist making sculpture’, elements of both functionality and sculpture are combined in the form of his series of hand-carved bowls.
