This is a one-off British Ash platter with a scorched rim. The piece is 30 centimeters (12 inches) in diameter and 2 centimeters deep. The blackening of the rim beautifully shows off the much lighter and beautiful graining of the hardwood. The bowl is hand turned from one piece of Ash by myself in my Weymouth workshop and finished with Dorset beeswax which is both completely natural and chemical free. The wax also shows off the wood grain beautifully and provides an easily maintained and hard wearing finish. This piece will make a lovely table centrepiece or feature of any worktop.
