Jonathan Leech Hand-Turns Beautiful Bowls From Sustainably-Sourced Cumbrian wood

Artistic wood-turner Jonathan Leech lives and works in the north west of England. He produces a wide range of large, distinctive, wooden bowls from local, sustainably-sourced timber. Jonathan first began working with wood in 2005, when he joined the workshop of Cumbrian furniture-maker Danny Frost . As he spent more of his time working on the lathe, his initial interest developed into a passion and soon he was hooked! The natural beauty of his rural surroundings is a constant source of inspiration and this is reflected in his work. Each piece is hand-made from locally-sourced timber, obtained without damaging the environment – for example from fallen or storm-damaged trees .
