"Elegant, handmade furniture from Jonathan Field, sculptural pieces made from beautiful timbers"
Jonathan’s work has been shown at various exhibitions and shows in the UK and Abroad and by his gallery Connaught Brown of London, most recently at TEFAF in Maastricht and the new British Art Fair in London.
Jonathan is a member of the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. He was delighted to be awarded a bespoke guild mark award for an edition of ten chairs in rippled ash completed in 2017.
“Much of my inspiration comes from the patterns, shapes and textures found in nature, from the micro to full-scale aerial views. I like the simple flowing lines of a table or chair and the visual and tactile detail of the wood within a framed structure. Using wood predominantly from the UK, and often salvaged timbers that have a history and a beauty entirely unique to each piece, the distinctive aspects of the timber are often a starting point when considering a project for a client. the selection of the materials, the care for detail and love of the making process are all carried through within each piece for the viewer and user to link with and engage.”
"I like the elegant simplicity of a table to be found at the centre of the home. It is a pleasing thought that a large proportion of my commissions are for tables, the significance of which resonates with me as a symbol of meeting and coming together".
