This dish is made from Pippy oak - where small branches grow out of the trunk in reaction to increased levels of sunlight.
Perfectly imperfect and full of interest.
Handmade from an old oak that had been removed because it was unsafe and near a bridle path on the edge of Dartmoor.
The same time taken to turn the vessel was invested in finishing the piece with 3 coats of Danish oil, it was buffed between coats then protected with multiple thin layers of a micro crystalline wax.
A one of a kind hand cut and turned dish - perfect to use as a jewellery dish to store your favourite rings, earrings or cufflinks. It is approximately 80mm x 80mm x 28mm.

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.
