Since 2008, I have used a kiln to explore the beauty of glass. I cut, shape, and arrange the art glass from large sheets and uses the intense heat of the kiln to fuse the pieces together and to give the glass a new shape. Creating glass pieces with a kiln is a challenging combination of creativity and technical knowledge that, when done correctly, produces unique forms that will last a lifetime and beyond. I create functional pieces, like bowls, plates, vases, and serving platters. I also create many decorative items, both for the home and to wear. These items include sculpture, wall hangings, clocks, coasters, bottle stoppers, and jewelry pieces such as pendants, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, and hair clips. I also offer classes and workshops out of my home Studio in Quinte West, ON.

Turning Trees is a small home based business located in the country outside of Perth, Ontario, Canada.
My wife Laurie and I (Jon) are the creators, producers, assemblers and shippers. We have four beautiful daughters and five amazing grandchildren which occupies a large amount of our time.
I have been turning wood for approximately 15 years in my work shop on our property. We have access to over 100 acres of wooded land from which we cut both firewood, and wood that I use to turn on my wood lathe.
Our pendants are created from wood, here on the property. Exotic woods are purchased from a local wood supplier, KJP Select Hardwood in Ottawa, Ontario. Acrylic blanks are purchased from a supplier, William Wood-Write Ltd in Guelph Ontario. We source our hardware from William Wood-Write as well.
We only use the best quality hardware on the market and will not compromise with a cheaper version due to supplier’s availability.
The studio features hand-painted and silk-screened clothing in linen and cottons, as well as painted furniture and floor-cloths. This picturesque studio is nestled in the historic village of Rockport. The flora and fauna that landscapes the St. Lawrence River, is often the source for design inspiration. Summerhouse offers workshops and custom design work.
Metalsmith & Pottery
I am a metalsmith/silversmith creating wearable art using Stirling Silver, Copper, Brass and stones handcrafted by me. I also create functional pieces of clothing under my line "Gnome Gear" an assortment of funky one of a kind hats and scarves, made with wool, cotton, recycled silk sari yarns and often copper, brass, bronze and wood. I also enjoy combining my pottery pieces with metals and other materials like wood and fibre.
