Enclosed forms are special, tactile objects. Each piece is meant to be picked up and held, to feel the texture of the timber and the curves of the form.

This vessel was turned from green maple, burnished on the lathe and left to dry for a few days before being oiled. The tool marks and burnished surface give a brief history of the process and suggest the hands involved in the making.

As the vessel dries, it distorts and changes shape to reveal the textures of the material. The movement forces the wood to pull apart in certain areas due to the internal stresses of the tree being released. The process of making these is one inspired by the life of the tree, always in motion.

Form measures approximately:
8” wide and 5.5" high

Finished with completely food-safe tung oil.
