A natural edge vessel made from Horse Chestnut

Size - D 12.5cm x H 13.5cm 

Finish - Tung Oil and Waxes 

Sourced from a large tree which fell down in 2021 in our woodland. The wood is unusually dark and I’ve never seen anything quite like it.

This phenomenon happens when a fungus gets inside the tree whilst it was alive, stains the wood and the tree fights back to contain the spread by depositing waxes and resins. This culminates in these bands of colour throughout the wood. A truly delightful oddity.

This piece has some remarkable figuring and burred elements. Most notably it exhibits a grown over scar, with two sections of live wood reconnecting many years after the damage occurred. 

One of four horse chestnut pieces in this collection. 

For use as decoration or display.

N.B. Tung Oil comes from a nut so please be aware if you have a nut allergy.
