- Size: approximately 30cm x 5cm (48mm)
- Due to the custom hand made nature of these products, there will be some variation in size and appearance.
- Fusing Scandinavian design and British hardwood, each of these decorative statement pieces is slowly hand carved by Bird & Branch with locally sourced sustainable hardwood. The grain of the wood is preserved, and the shapes of these wooden bowls, vases and candles sticks open the opportunity to create your own story for years to come.
This wooden platter in English Oak has been subject the ancient Japanese technique of Yakisugi to create a black charred effect on the outside, leaving the inside natural oak.
Once this oak platter has been hand turned, parts of the platter are scorched with a 2000 degree flame to instantly char the outside surface. An abrasive is used to remove the thin layer of loose charcoal and the process starts again. The wood platter is then treated with a food safe hard wax oil.
The inside of the wood serving platter is left as natural oak.
The underside of this beautiful serving platter is charred and contains the Bird and Branch logo at its centre.
Some thin cracks and splits are evidence of the rapid moisture loss that takes place during the making the Yakisugi process, however, these lines are now stable and won’t expand.
The oak, full of warmth and character, is sustainably sourced from Devon, UK.
This tactile handmade wood platter is a beautiful and practical, long lasting statement statement piece for the Natural Home.
Also available as platter in plain oak.
Made by Bird & Branch Turnery
