ユーカリ (YUKARI)

Inspired by the ephemeral notion of transformation through fire, Yukari takes queues from Shou Sugi Ban, the Japanese architectural finishing technique of sealing wood through fire, and elements of wabi-sabi.  A series of bowls and platters have been created from reclaimed Australian Eucalyptus, with metal cast into the split wood creating unity within the form and a renewed life.  The metal contrasts the naturally occurring cavities highlighting the human impact on the environment around us. 

Finished in a hand made beeswax and coconut polish.

 

N.B. Through considerable testing, only one concrete driveway was severely harmed in the making of these objects.
