Josh Kennard

land marked 2024

Josh Kennard has been consistently curious and experimental with forms, textures, and materials throughout his career. With a keen interest in the natural world, he draws inspiration from natural processes and the materials they produce.


Educated as a furniture maker, Josh has over 15 years of experience in the craft and runs his own business creating standalone furniture and homewares. While he loves his profession, he sometimes feels a conflict between the utility of furniture and his desire to create purely artistic pieces. In his work as a furniture maker, Josh often encounters a variety of materials. It is through this playful experimentation that he discovered an intriguing new medium: tree bark. His first formal collection centers on this often overlooked and discarded material.


Josh has always felt a deep connection to timber and a fascination with forests. Working with tree bark, he finds an exciting departure from the more uniform timber he is accustomed to. The bark tells the long story of a tree’s existence, with layers of defense built up over many years forming intricate and deep textures. Each piece of bark, even from the same species of tree, offers a unique and intriguing experience.


In this collection, Josh aims to highlight the natural beauty of tree bark by arranging and framing snapshots of this natural world.
