Born and lives in Devon, England. Jason was introduced to the woodturning lathe at the age of twelve, through schooling and with the support of his parents this interest developed. At the age of 15 he attended a woodturning course with Cecil Jordan held at Parnham House in Dorset; this week long course covered a wide range of items, but also introduced him to the simple art of the turned wooden box. On finishing at school he attended college studying Furniture Design and Management, obtaining a BA (Hons). He then worked for a number of years making bespoke kitchens and furniture allowing him to develop and hone his skills. As much as he enjoys making furniture, his real enjoyment and enthusiasm has always been working upon the wood lathe, even though like most turners Jason can turn his hand to most projects and disciplines, His flair for making and developing ideas for turned wooden boxes is his main interest.
