This is another new creation made from a burl... this time the exotic Pepper Tree which is native to Brazil and something of an invasive species in South Africa. This is even bigger than our last burl platter, measuring a massive 750 mm in diameter.⠀ ⠀ Certain species that are more prone to fungal attacks produce burl wood, this gnarly growth on the tree that has really unusual grain, and it's really beautiful to work with because of its uniqueness. You'll never find another piece of timber like this.⠀ ⠀ This hefty yet delicate platter can be seen on display at the Southern Guild Gallery in Cape Town's waterfront Silo District. ⠀

"Hand-turned wooden bowls. Each artwork is totally unique and derives its character from the beautiful individuality of the tree that gave birth to it."
