Artist's description:

Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. The unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are much sought after by woodworkers so I was so pleased to find this beatifully spalted piece of beech. The colours and natural patterns really do enhance the beauty of this fruit bowl. I have followed the original shape of the log and left some of the wavy edges to retain the texture and character of the wood which has been treated with a coat of woodworm protection before rubbing down to a fine finish, sealed with clear shellac before polishing to a deep lustre with pure bees wax.

Measurements: Length 14.5 inches. Width 10 inches. Height 3.75 inches.

Each of my carvings has my logo/initials burned into the back

Please note, my style of carving is natural and freehand predominantly using knives and chisels after initial roughing out. I don't believe in overworking my pieces to a clinical, pristine finish such as you might find on a cheap, machine produced item on the high street. I often work from found pieces of wood which may have twisted and cracked as they weathered and dried naturally. I like to leave the occasional old scar as well as others formed during the process of carving, to give each piece a unique character and form a direct connection back to my hands and hint at the previous life of the piece of wood
