Sourced from a Field Maple tree over 100 years old on the edge of our woodland. This tree unfortunately had to be felled last year. It has however provided us with a good amount of beautiful material.
This piece has some of the best rippled grain I’ve seen, with dense bands of pale flame throughout and small bark inclusion on the top surface.
The design is new for this collection and quite architectural in style. My previous profession still influencing my designs today, always aiming to be 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 aspect 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.
Designed to be ornamental but can take light food use.
