Sourced from a Field Maple tree over 100 years old on the edge of our woodland. This tree unfortunately had to be felled last year. It has however provided us with a good amount of beautiful material.
This piece has some delightful rippled grain. It is also quarter sawn so the beautifully subtle medullary rays are visible. This coupled with the rippled wood provides an intriguing pearlescent quality.
The design is new for this collection and quite architectural in style. My previous profession still influencing my designs today, always aiming to be simple and refined. Sharp angled outer walls are contrasted buy the curved interior. A very thin rim gives an elegance and feeling of lightness to the piece.
The wood has been kiln dried which has altered the natural colour from a pale cream to a light golden brown.
Designed to be ornamental but can take light food use.
