Freshly cut chairs

  • • Jason's work is rooted in his heritage
  • • He uses sustainable timbers
  • • He is a teacher as well as a craftsman

Jason Mosseri has been a painter, club decorator, tattoo artist and general creative rebel. He also developed a surprising interest in traditional chair making, crediting Paul Hayden with getting him hooked on the craft. In 2017, Mosseri packed up his tattooing machine in favour of setting up a woodworking workshop. It may seem like leap, but there is a residual sense of art meeting the body. Mosseri makes beautiful, functional chairs from green wood – wood that is fresh cut. This softer wood allows him to shape using traditional tools and methods. His timber is sourced from local estates which are managed by experienced woodsmen, promoting healthy and diverse woodland.

Shaker bench

A ‘Shaker’ style bench, with a little more attitude. These can be made to measure, and are great in smaller spaces, around tables or freestanding. Jason usually builds them from elm or oak, and this one is finished with a jet-black milk paint.
