Size - D 15.5cm x H 6cm

A new design that I’ve been tinkering with for some time. A gently curving base meets thin and slightly in-turned walls. This design features in many of my bowls in this new collection. 

A food safe finish allows flexibility of use but would recommend this piece to be used for trinkets and alike or purely ornamental. An extraordinary piece of wood. 

This is storm fallen beech I have specially cut and prepared within our woodland, actively encouraging the timber to spalt. I've been doing this for many years now so it's not all luck but you never know quite what you are going to get until you cut the piece open.

This batch I really couldn't believe my eyes. Very high quality spalting with almost no punky (soft) wood.

This really is the Goldilocks zone that is so difficult to come by. Cut the wood too soon and there are no patterns, cut the wood too late and it becomes a rotten mess.

Spalting happens during the initial process of decay. By cutting and seasoning the wood, the spalting process stops, immortalising the patterns within.
