A very pretty wooden dish handmade from a super dense piece of oak crotch. This is the union between two branches where high pressures, caused by the weight put through this potential weak point, triggers overgrowth to strengthen the area. This generates the beautiful flame figuring.
This piece is from Bovey Tracey in Devon and was removed at the end of life, before becoming a risk in a public area. It was then dried and hand turned.
It's been finished with 3 coats of Danish oil and protected with micro crystalline wax (it doesn’t melt like bees wax when handled - so doesn’t get easily marked).
This wooden dish is 125mm diameter and 40mm high.
** Proceeds from sales of Adam's work fund his son cyclist Ben Cornish’s journey toward the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics. Ben is 16 and on the GB Cycling Team but doesn’t receive funding until he’s 18yrs. In 2023 Ben had two international wins, five podiums and was 5th in the UCI World Championships. He also became the u19 National Champion - his 3rd consecutive national title.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
