Bowl - in Field Maple
Shallow bowl made from Rippled Field Maple

Sourced from a Field Maple tree over 100 years old on the edge of our woodland. This tree unfortunately had to be felled as it was a dangerous. It has however provided us with a good amount of beautiful material.
This piece has some delightful rippled grain and an intriguing bark inclusion visible both inside and outside of the bowl.
The design is new for this collection and harks back to an architectural style, aiming to be quite clinical, simple and refined. A ring shaped foot raises the piece off the table providing a shadow gap, one of my favourite details. I like to make every detail as beautiful as it can be and the underside is no exception.
The wood has been kiln dried which has altered the natural colour from a pale cream to a light golden brown.
