Spalted Holly, hollow form. 13 cm W x 12 cm H

Spalted Holly hollow form.

Showing subtle and delicate colouring , a hallmark of this species, here enhanced with the  fine tracery of Spalting.

 Spalting being the process whereby damp dead wood is infected by fungi causing  the wood to decay. The boundary of each site of infection is marked by a distinctive line. Once dry and worked the fungi die , leaving the attractive markings beloved of woodworkers.

These forms are made by creating a hollow vessel, working only through the 25 mm. entrance hole. Time consuming because of the frequent stopping necessary to clear shavings from the interior.
