Keith Jaques

I create decorative woodturned items using native and exotic hardwoods letting the natural beauty of the various woods speak for themselves.

I am a relative newcomer to woodturning having only started in 2015 having been searching for a creative outlet for many years. It is an immersive process requiring a level of concentration and mindfulness which allows an escape from everyday worries.

The process of shaping wood as it spins on a lathe has its own natural limits which allow me to focus on simple classic shapes which in turn allow a hidden beauty of the wood to show revealing patterns in the grain which are not visible in flat sawn timber. Combining this with the natural colours which occur in many woods leads to the possibility of making very visually attractive pieces and using the correct finish also makes the very tactile too, many pieces are very satisfying to pick up and hold.
