Small Bog Oak Triptych With Gold

350.00

Our bog oak is from the fens of East Anglia.  It is over 5000 years old and semi-fossilized.  There really is nothing else like it.  The tannins absorbed in the bog give this timber a dark color, while still retaining the warm richness of oak.  Cool and smooth to the touch, it is an amazing thing to hold, a piece of something that was alive in ancient times.

The rough edges of this piece are the edges of the primeval tree limb that it was crafted from.  The bark becomes brittle after it’s time in the bog and this texture is what is underneath.  The roughness of it gives a gorgeous contrast with the metal leaf while giving a real sense of the ancient tree that it was a part of. 

The shape of our triptychs is inspired by the gilded altarpieces of the Dutch Renaissance.  They are three separate pieces so can be displayed in a variety of ways. 

This piece is finished in classic and spectacular 24 carat gold leaf gilding. 

This piece measures 15 cm wide minimum, 14.5 cm in height and 6.7 cm deep.  Weight is 700 grams.
