Hand turned bowl of an old oak
Landgoed de Tempel is a unique part of Rotterdam: a monumental baroque villa just north of Overschie, surrounded by ancient wood. The estate is the proud owner of the oldest oak in Rotterdam. However, one of the other old oak trees was shaken by a storm in 2017 and had to be grubbed up. A piece of this old oak is hand turned into a beautiful bowl.
Part of the charm is the irregularity, the different structures and that every side of this bowl is completely different. Finished with triple layers of Danish oil for protection and shine.
A bowl that will last a life time
Rotterdam is full of beautiful trees. But sometimes a tree has to be cut down due to an illness, possible danger or construction work. To prevent these trees to get completely shredded, I turn some hand picked pieces into high quality items - each with their own story to tell.
