In 2014 I was asked to turn a salad bowl from the Cedar wood from a tree recently felled near Guildford in Surrey. I promptly delivered this commission and was allowed to help myself from the enormous wood pile.
The chunk for this piece lay forgotten in my shed until I recently tidied it up during lockdown. The form was turned across the grain and hollowed through a small opening. This piece had a rather uninteresting grain so I decorated the outside by texturing it and wire brushing to emphasise the grain; then I applied verdigris wax to complete the process.
