Bowl made from Spalted Olive Ash

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.
Left too long however, the wood gets too soft and becomes unusable. It’s a tricky balance to get right but something we are beginning to master.
By cutting and seasoning the wood, the spalting process stops. Then I have the pleasure of revealing what’s inside.
Here at Havelock Studio we take care of every part of the process from harvesting the timber, to processing, to drying and lastly carefully crafting the finished piece.
Another new design for this collection. A ring shaped foot providing a nice shadow gap to display a straight sided but slightly flared bowl. A simple and graphic design allowing the beauty of the timber to shine through.
