While we specialise in designing and making kitchens and furniture, in our down time we love to make wooden bowls. We find wood turning extremely freeing and there’s nothing better than taking a log and putting it on the lathe and losing yourself for an hour or two.
We never plan our bowl designs and let the wood speak for itself, creating as we work, which we find is the most authentic way when it comes to wood turning. You could say we take a laid back approach to our wood turning methods and embrace the ‘Wabi-sabi’ way of making. For those who haven’t heard of this, Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of imperfect beauty, in essence accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay in which each imperfection has its own beauty. This is why we don’t try to hide splits or knots in the wood and instead see these as nature’s natural story tellers.
