Fairlight in Patterned Beech

Hand turned in our Fairlight style from a unique material we call Patterned Beech, the beautiful markings of this bowl are an organic result caused by the natural process of regeneration within the woodlands. This type of timber is exactly what we developed the straight sided, fine rimmed shape of the Fairlight Design for. The simplicity of the form lends itself perfectly to allowing the wood to show its true personality and beauty uninhibited.

Fallen Beech trees are left on their sides for between 3-5 years and during this time the patterns develop as the log breaks down. Once the wood is milled and dried the beautiful results are locked in place waiting to be revealed by our chisels. Between the time in the forest and then air drying it can be 7-8 years after the tree was felled before we can work with this material. Our challenge is to make sure that we do it justice and turn something truly beautiful from it.

This bowl measures 19.5cm wide, 7.5cm tall and 6cm deep.

Finished with organic hemp seed oil.
