Ever since I was a child I’ve always held positive associations with timber crockery. Each birthday mum would dust off the wooden bowls and pour the chips and cheezels in as we waited in anticipation. To this day I am not sure why but they were reserved only for parties.
What I really appreciate about this particular material exploration is how out of context this application is. Taking something generally refered to as heavy, dense and solid and giving it fragility, shape and lightness.
Below are my wish list items for timber dinnerware. Hopefully I can build a collection in time for my next birthday party and relive the ‘chips-in-wooden bowl’ memories.
