Sourced from storm fallen timber harvested from our woodland. The log which this piece came from has been left outside in the elements where it has started to spalt, creating these beautiful black lines and dappled markings.
By cutting and seasoning the wood, the spalting process stops. Then I have the pleasure of revealing what’s inside.
I’m really pleased with the shape and feel of this piece. A design I will certainly make again. Quite architectural in its simplicity with a thin rim for a look of delicacy but a thicker base for solidity.
Although the piece is spalted the wood is very hard and stable so would suit a utilitarian role in your home if so desired. Or equally suited to be ornamental.
