This bowl was turned from ash, felled at National Trust's Ashridge Estate, Herts.
Ash is usually a uniform cream colour but every so often you find a tree with a dark, patterned heartwood, this tree has such patterning and because of its likeness to olive wood we refer to it as 'olive' ash.
The bowl is sealed and finished with food-safe oils and Hertswood Wood Goo
Every Hertswood product comes with a handwritten card containing care instructions and explaining more about the wood and where it came from.
This bowl measures approximately 60mm in height and 200mm in diameter.
