Horse Chestnut is a very pale creamy coloured wood, often very figured or burred but hidden by the

blandness of the wood. This for me is ideal material for my colouring technique. I use multiple coats of lightfast stain to make that otherwise hidden fiogure stand out. With this piece I used Royal Blue and Light Blue to acheive this result.

Each piece is handturned by me from green wood. They are twice turned, the first time they are roughed out andleft to dry for up to 6 months.Once the piece is dry they are taken back to the lathe, the shape is refined then multuiple coats of stain are applied to enhance the hidden figure. Up to 6 coats of lacquer are applied to give a long lasting durable finish. The Holly lid is individually made and has a handcut 12tpi thread ensuring a secure closure.
