ORKNEY SYCAMORE ‘Grooved ware' inspired bowl. Turned from stunning local Orkney sycamore and the decoration is inspired by the Neolithic Grooved ware pottery found on digs here. This beautiful little bowl has been decorated with grooves which have then been coloured using Hematite. Friction burnt lines have been added around the rim with some hand applied pyrography detail. The sycamore was felled and turned with in a few days and has therefore kept it from staining (which is very normal in sycamore due to a the sap). This has resulted in a real chatoyance look to the timber. Finished with several coats of oil and buffed. 80mm x 130mm∅
This bowl is part of the Ness of Brodgar Easter collaboration and funds from the profit will go towards the running of the site. We are keeping our fingers crossed that there will be some way the site will be able to open this year, if guidance allows.
