Method: Hand-turned on a lathe using a range of gouges
Handcrafted by Jayne Armstrong, this beautiful bowl is made from eucalyptus, locally sourced from her village in France. This extraordinarily lightweight form highlights the intrinsic beauty of the wood and explores the combination of fragility and solidity in her impressive body of work. The exquisite bowl features undulating, monochromatic lines across the body which reveals Armstrong’s fascination with natural materials and their raw characteristics.
Functional: wipe with a damp cloth to clean; keep away from direct heat sources
About the Artist:
Jayne Armstrong is an artist and maker in wood. Jayne works primarily in fresh, green wood to explore the sculptural and aesthetic possibilities of a material that moves and changes shape as it dries. Her work is intended to play with the boundary between sculpture and function and to challenge expectations of the material itself. The resulting forms are fluid, undulating and frequently monochromatic in tone.
Jayne’s background as an academic within the field of cultural studies informs and underpins her approach to her work. Her work is experimental and exploratory, drawing from art history, design history and philosophy. She describes her work as a dialogue between material, concept, technology and technique.
