Bowls made from a long fallen cherry tree in National Trust's Ashridge Estate, Herts.
The patterning on the wood is called 'spalting' and occurs when fungi colonise the wood and begin to break it down. Spalting is common in beech and birch but less so in cherry so I was excited to see this.
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.
Each bowl measures approximately 140mm in height and 50mm in diameter at its widest.
