Oak Three Foot vessels are turned and shaped from English Oak, sourced from arborists within the Devon landscape. The initial forms are turned whilst the timber is fresh and easier to carve before the rough forms are then set into a wood kiln which allows the wood to dry and begin settle into it’s natural contours. Before the vessels are completely dry they are taken back to the lathe to be shaped to their final dimensions and the feet then carved and finished by hand. The final form is entirely determined by the nature of the wood itself as the last of the moisture leaves the grain and the fibres settle into place, making every piece unique.
Maintaining and cleaning your wood product is easy; simply hand wash or wipe after use with warm soapy water. Avoid leaving in water or dishwashing as this will significantly weaken and damage your product. Unlike metal or plastic, wood is naturally antibacterial and after a light wash will neutralise 99% of remaining bacteria after 24 hours.
