Mathew Gardner

Festival: 2019

Working from my home workshop in rural Lincolnshire affords me the time I need to create. As a self taught woodturner I take pleasure in unlocking the incredible beauty of the wood itself, and love how you can express yourself in ways that words just cannot. Nothing measures up to the excitement and discovery of peeling away layers of wood and exposing the hidden treasures in the grain, texture and colour. Using the gifts of nature I create unique handcrafted wood turned pieces, from small practical items to bespoke statement pieces.
