Makers & Brothers with Matt Jones

Makers & Brothers with Matt Jones

Makers & Brothers is a design led multichannel retail operation developed by two brothers, Jonathan and Mark Legge, founded on simple things; the handmade, objects of integrity, contemporary vernacular and a curation of everyday design and craft. They define craft as a process: a production by hand or machine. As well as offering an array of products by designers and makers from all over the world the in house design team actively work with local makers to produce new work. Through this work they explore Irish craft, tradition and process.

Originally from Pembrokeshire in Wales Matt Jones studied painting at Chelsea College of Art and lived and worked in London for many years before moving to Ireland. Like many woodturners Matt started turning as a hobby and decided in 2009 to become a fulltime woodturner. Wood is a mysterious material to work with. It moves and breathes, it can crack and warp. Matt believes that understanding these internal forces is a vital part of his craft.
