Bog Oak Bowl With Champagne Gold Inner

750.00

We are sometimes very lucky to be able to source just the right piece of wood to create one of our beautiful natural edge bowls.  The rough edge of this piece is the outside on the ancient tree after the bark has come away from its time in the bog.  The dark tones of the wood pair perfectly with the ethereal luster of 22.5 carat champagne gold to create a piece at once beautiful and evocative. 

Our bog oak is from the East Anglian fens.  It’s over 5000 years old and semi-fossilized.  There is really no other wood like it.  The tannins absorbed in the bog give this timber a dark colour, while still retaining the warm rich tones of oak.  Cool and smooth to the touch, it is an amazing thing to hold, a piece of something that was alive in prehistory. 

 

This piece measures 29 cm diameter and 10 cm deep.  Weight is 2400 grams.
