Flying in from Dublin, Joe Laird is number seven among the turners for Ten Turners Turning.
Joe has brought his wood skills to the woodturning world only in the last 15 years. He became a professional woodturner 12 years ago and now spends his time at his home studio in Clonee, Co Meath in Ireland.
Joe’s reputation for creativity and quality is recognised both in Ireland and overseas. He likes the wood to determine the final piece, often using the wood’s natural qualities and idiosyncrasies to enhance the visual and aesthetic appeal of the finished item. Most of Joe’s time is spent copy turning for clients which is a great challenge. He also teaches, demonstrates and turns whiskey tumblers for local distillers.
