My passion lies in the wood it’s self.
I find it fascinating; something that was once mearly a tiny seed with a minimal chance of survival, with many factors to limit its probability of development - still grew.
Then, for often centuries, that seed has gone on to grow into a spectacular life form that we all admire in peaceful moments. The tree that has endured seasons of continues change and weather that could easily have ended its life as a sapling or even when fully established .
Inevitably that tree as a standing structure comes to an end at some point. But what it reveals within its heart is literally breath-taking.
The patterning variations are its hidden secret for so many years during maturity, with each season leaving its mark and each passing year being beautifully documented.
As I begin to turn each blank, the excitement and anticipation of what is about to be revealed within the wood, is always the same for me. Those blanks to me are wrapped up presents that nobody on this plant knows what beauties lie within and there will NEVER be any one the same.
A life after growth into a true to the sense of the word bespoke item, that again will survive centuries more; to me is AMAZING!
What else in your household has survived so much against the odds, there is only one of & will last the end of time?
A part from yourself that is.
