Miriam Jones enjoys creating beautiful and decorative objects which are inspired by her surroundings on a small farm in North Wales which is located a stone throw away from Hell's mouth beach. Her first language is Welsh, and Miriam incorporate language and poetry into her work through laser etching onto the wood.
During her time in Manchester studying 3d Design and MA Design at Manchester school of art, Mirim discovered how strongly my Welsh background inspired her work, and how woodwork forms a part of my identity. She is the fourth generation within her family to take up wood work and the only female. Although she explored other materials and inspirations during her time at university, it was Wales and wood that the focus of her work often returned to.
Farming is also an important element which influences Miriam's work, she takes inspiration from rope tying's which are interpreted strongly within her products through binding coloured thread and inlaying them into the wood.
A lot of her work is created from reclaimed timber or off cuts from other projects and later turned into beautiful objects with a purpose and meaning once more. Nothing goes to waste in the process of making, with the wood shavings being re used under the chickens on the farm. Each item is unique and has a story to tell, make sure you read each item's product description to learn about their story and inspirations.
Mirim's work is simple,contemporary, tactile and decorative: it celebrates the natural beauty of wood through simple forms, and adding a hint of colour to attract the eye and make wood look feminine and fun.
