Sycamore Vessel (Large)

Anthony Bryant
£4,400
Sycamore Vessel (Large) by Cornish woodturner Anthony Bryant is a decorative piece crafted from finely turned Sycamore wood.

Anthony is inspired by the character and aesthetics of each individual tree. Each piece is 'turned green', meaning it is crafted from a freshly-felled tree before the wood can be season, allowing the material to warp into its final shape. 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 Sycamore wood for its unique aesthetic and robust material properties.
