Whirl & Whittle

Zai Short Vessel Black Oak

$95.00

Your scars are beautiful.  'Woodturners are often on the lookout for atypical woods to turn. They search for woods that have unique coloration and patterns, woods that have burls, spalting, weird cracks, and crotch pieces. They are willing to pay high prices to acquire these pieces, pieces that would surprise them with their uniqueness. And collectors pay even more to buy objects made from them.  When we can love, adore, and appreciate these woods for their scars and their shortcomings, why can’t we do that for ourselves?  I created a collection that would act as a reminder that our scars are beautiful, and our injuries are what make us unique.

Dimensions:  3 1/2"O x 4"H   Material:  Black Oak    Origin: Ontario, Canada

Whirl & Whittle builds wooden home goods; so people can appreciate the beauty of imperfection and impermanence; in today’s ideals of beauty, relentless pursuit of youth, being static or being without flaws.  Wood is an ideal material for our products, as no two pieces of wood are the same, and each piece will age uniquely and showcase distinctive features with wear.
