Ash Vessel VII (Large)

Anthony Bryant
£4,400
Ash Vessel VII (Large) by Cornish woodturner Anthony Bryant is inspired by windswept woodlands and the beauty of found timber. This decorative piece is a unique reflection of the natural world.

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 a large tree that fell in a field not far from Anthony's home near Helston. It can take up to a year between felling a tree and completing a piece, as Anthony turns the wood when fresh and green, which allows the piece to move and shape as it dries naturally.

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 into shape. Anthony uses English wood (Oak or Ash) for its unique aesthetic and robust material properties.
