Irish Yew Salad Bowl with beaded detail.
We sourced the Yew for this bowl from a farm in Co Laois.Irish Yew is regarded as one of Irelands only native conifer trees famed for it longevity. It appears in Irish mythology, as one of the five scared tree's. It was protected under Brehon Law as one of the seven chieftains trees.
This bowl has been twice turned, to produce this beautiful bowl.
We decided to keep the live natural edge, to showcase the amazing contrasting colours of the yew wood. The colours run from a smooth cream colour into a tan and rich red tone. The swirling pattern of the grain ripples make a stunning piece which draws your attention.
This bowl is finished in a food safe Danish Oil.
