Hi, I am Jonathon 'Jona' Cleaver, after years of working in forestry and tree surgery, I turned my talent with a chainsaw to produce art. Having always had a passion for art since my teens, I now use the resources that I've worked with throughout my career, to create sculptures and furniture.
A sense of humour and playfulness is a large part of my expression within my work.
Predominantly using English oak or other durable quality hard woods, I produce a range of pieces; tables, chairs and benches for example, that can become a focal point of any garden or outside space, that will last a lifetime. Many of my sculptures can be found in gardens and parks in Hampshire.
Through my sculptures, carvings, benches and other items carved from wood, I invite you to bring pieces of my story into your life and home. New pieces of work are released regularly, so please check back often. If you wish to have a commission or wish to bring to life that tree stump, please contact me.
No job is too large or to small, I am the most happiest in the Hampshire countryside with my chainsaw and a piece of wood needing rejuvenation.
