Matt’s background is mechanical engineering but he has always had a love affair with the look and feel of wood, and the smell of the woodshop brings back happy childhood memories of time spent with his dad. A turn of events in life has brought Matt back to explore this love affair with wood, resulting in the pieces he has on display.

Like any great sculptor, Matt has the ability to let the wood tell its own story, only helping it to become what it ultimately wanted to be in the first place! As such, every piece is unique…there is no plan or commercial operation here. Just Matt in his Barn

Thus it is that what you see are all original and carefully hand-made products, not false, plastic-looking stuff from a cookie-cutter fabricating factory. All the knots, colour changes and blemishes are welcomed as character which helps to make each wood piece special.

Note that, wherever possible, Matt locates wood from sources such as windfalls and storm damaged trees, recycled and reclaimed wood, and on the odd occasion where he uses felled-for-purpose logs, he selects only ethically forested products from reputable providers.

Enjoy!

Care for your wooden food-safe bowl

Your bowl is finished with food-safe oil finish and/or bees wax. This fine, oil finish lets you see the unique, natural character of the wood. This finish also serves as the ideal original finish for your bowl, allowing it to achieve a patina that only comes with repeated use of the bowl over time. This patina will make your bowl even more beautiful every year, for years to come.

Wash in mild soapy water and towel dry. Do not soak or place in the dishwasher. It is worthwhile occasionally treating it to a wipe with light walnut oil or vegetable oil, especially if the wood starts to appear dry. Always remember that, although made from properly seasoned and dried wood, your wooden bowl can still “set” so avoid exposing it to sudden changes of humidity or temperature.

Oiled bowls, which are exposed to air and sunlight, will darken over the years – lighter coloured bowls will darken more dramatically. This is how a beautiful patina is created like that seen on bowls which have been passed down through generations. It will add to the beauty and character of your bowl.

Care for your decorative wooden product

Minimal care is needed for decorative bowls and other products. However, an occasional application of polish and a buffing will enhance the sheen of high gloss items. To slow the natural darkening process, keep your bowl out of direct sunlight. And remember: your wooden item can still “set” so avoid exposing it to sudden changes of humidity or temperature.

Special Commissions

If you have something particular in mind for that unique gift or special occasion, Matt is only too happy to talk through the possibilities. Think about the wood type, the finish, the shape, colour and size that you would like, and allow Matt to help you crystallise those thoughts into a beautiful finished product!
