Irish Yew Winged Bowl.This beautiful piece features the rich and warm colours associated with the Yew Tree.
We were asked to remove this Yew Tree from a farm in Co Laois due to the leaves being poisonous to farm animals. This tree was cut in late 2017 and allowed to season over the spring of 2018. It was then planked and cut into blanks over the summer months.
This bowl has been twice turned before the final design was completed. The wide rim on this bowl and the flowing figured of the timber make this a stunning piece. The rich warm tones of this piece draw your attention, to the beautiful highly figured timber making for a show-stopping piece.
Irish Yew is a symbol of immortality and everlasting life, we are so glad to have been given an opportunity to work and re-purpose this amazing timber into something that is both practical and beautiful.
