Large Ash Vessel (Tall) by Anthony Bryant. The inherent beauty of wood motivates Anthony to push his skills to new heights. Discovering the grain, and the way it affects the form of each piece, is central to his process. Working with fresh unseasoned wood is a journey of exploration, in which the surface reveals the story of the form. This English Ash, with coloured heartwood, was sourced from large tree that fell in a field not far from Anthony's home, near Helston.

Process

Using handmade tools, Anthony turns each greenwood piece over the space of a few days. Each thin-walled vessel is then left to dry, during which it warps in shape. Anthony uses English wood (Oak or Ash) for its unique aesthetic and robust material properties.
