It is definitely a conversation piece and a gorgeous work of art.
Each of our vessels are hand-turned solid wood by artist and craftsman, Ronald Leach. The wood used to create each piece is carefully selected from trees felled by storms or other natural occurrences.
Ron's work has an element of "wabi sabi" - the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. Each piece highlights the knots, burls, cracks, worm holes and crevices in the wood. It reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet and that our bodies, as well as the world around us, are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Celebrating the rustic beauty of imperfection makes the march of time more enjoyable.
