Glochidion Ferdinandi Wooden Bowl – Sui generis
A turned, one-off wooden bowl, made from Glochidion ferdinandi, otherwise known as a “Cheese Tree”.
19x19.5cm, 6.5cm tall, and 2.5cm thick, this "cheese tree" bowl is turned from seasoned stock provided by a local friend (and green thumb). The bowl has been chiseled from a flat-sided, half-log shape, to better reveal its fine grain. An ideal feature piece that would also serve well as a mortar for grinding herbs.
The piece is hand-turned in our small workshop in Deception Bay, Moreton Bay, oiled with Australian natural mineral oil, and buffed with our own Wood Butter conditioner. Like all our larger pieces, it features a small brand at base, and comes with a "Fancy Firewood" tag, and a "Caring for your Treenware" pamphlet.
Please note that our artisanal pieces aren't sanded within an inch of their lives, and often retain small marks from chisels, and other imperfections that give them their idiosyncratic characteristics. We think these add to their charm, and we hope you do too. Our pieces are all oiled and waxed, and not varnished.
