Silver Birch Leaf Bowl

Posted in New Work, Studio Stuff by Kate Jones on December 20, 2010

New limited edition of 50 bowls available from 10th January onwards.

The colour shown is a new warm bark brown and we are happy to make the bowl in any of our 19 colours. Please see our bowl web site for the full colour palette.

The leaves of the silver birch tree are the inspiration for this new limited edition of 50 bowls. The tree itself is steeped in folklore, as a symbol of renewal, purification and fertility and it is still one of the first trees to come into leaf in spring ! Which right now can’t come soon enough.

Chimney Bank

Minus 18 last night…and Chimney Bank still not so good to the first bend. Had difficulty walking up any further. The ploughers have been working on it since and hope to have the road over to Hutton open soon.
