John Shorrock is a woodturner based at his large workshop and wood store on his family farm. He uses hardwoods grown in the North West of England. Most of the wood is sourced from local tree surgeons. They let him know when they have a tree which they think is suitable for John’s style of wood turning.

“I visualize the shape I want before starting a piece but take careful note of the features as the piece develops. I work the final shape to reveal the grain and natural edges to best advantage. All my pieces are finished with melamine lacquer and then wax polished to bring out the natural markings of the wood. If possible I buy full trees and always like to know where they had grown. Most of my work at present is made out of Elm burr, Yew and Sycamore.”

John Shorrock has been creating turned vessels for over 20 years. His work is sought by collectors across the UK and further afield.
