Beech Vessel I (Large) 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 Beech was sourced from Lord Falmouth's Estate, Tregothnan, Cornwall.

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 qualities and robust material properties.

Anthony Bryant is internationally recognised for his work in 'green' woodturning. Working from his studio in Cornwall, Anthony creates work which stretches the potential of the material to its limits, both in scale and its breathtaking thinness. His thin walled green-turned wood pots showcase the technique he has developed since he began woodturning at the age of 13, with many pieces so fine the light shines through.
