Jo Burton

I am experienced sculptor and wood carving tutor who lives and works on the Wirral. I use traditional hand carving techniques to create beautiful, tactile, unique carvings. This year I have been experimenting with abstract shapes representing my feelings of love, closeness and missing those people that were important to me during the last two years.

I also make a range of hand carved natural, organic pendants and earrings and silver plate and antique bronze woven wire jewellery which incorporate reclaimed components, beads, driftwood and sea glass resulting in highly individual pieces.

I have exhibited with Wirral Open Studio Tour since 2018, Oxton Artists, and at Arts Fairs across Merseyside and Cheshire. I also do commissions and have pieces in private collections across the UK. I have a passion for sharing the traditional art of wood carving and run workshops which I hope to start up again during 2022.
