The beauty of wood.

The beauty of wood is surely revealed in these two little Olive Ash boxes, I knew when I turned the cylinder from the wet timber that it would be special, and now it had dried sufficiently to be used.

I wanted to make boxes in the style of George Watkins whose work with timber and acrylics I have long admired, and in this I feel happy with the result as they have a very nice balanced shape.

  1. Very nice indeed. George is an inspiration with his work. I like them all.

    1. Yes indeed, I am a fan! Thanks for leaving a comment Mark.
