“Wabi sabi – finding perfection in imperfection”
We continue to develop our range of hand made coppice craft products and here we introduce our dough bowls and mini pots. Ideal as gifts, each is truly a unique item due to the blemishes in the wood, the wood grain patterns and each being carved by hand or pole lathe.
The mini pots made by Graham on the pole lathe and finished off by Diana, who polishes or stains the pots according to the patterns in the wood. The pieces with the most beautiful patterns and markings are those with imperfections in the wood.
Graham hand carves the dough bowls from large logs of coppiced wood, he uses a grinder for getting some of the middle out, then reverts to hand for the final carving and polishing.
Our perfectly imperfect dough bowls and mini pots
Dough bowls measure approximately 12″ long and 8″ wide and are oval in shape. Priced at £75 these bowls will last for many years, with very little maintenance. Ideal for a ‘wooden’ anniversary, unique wedding gift, or for the cook in your life.
Traditionally, dough bowls were made by the father or husband to be as a wedding gift to the bride and the bowl was was treated as a prized family possession, passing from generation to generation. In Japan a broken or worn dough bowl would be repaired with gold to show how important the item was to the family.
