All my wood is responsibly sourced locally from tree surgeons, firewood merchants and local authorities. Each piece is selected for its character and beauty, rough turned to shape then allowed to dry and stabilise for up to six months. Once dry it is taken back to the lathe where the shape and wall thickness is finalised, the outer surface is sanded to a scratch free finish and has at least three coats of an eco-friendly hard wax oil applied which needs no further attention for many years. The coloured pieces are sprayed with numerous coats of an eco-friendly waterborne lacquer, then burnished to an ultra high gloss finish which again requires no more than dusting. The lids and corresponding inserts are made from various dense hardwoods, they have hand cut 12tpi threads and are unique to each urn ensuring a secure closure.
Each one is a truly unique piece of art and is individually signed and dated.
