Please note that those in a set will be made from the same length of timber and are therefore matching
Also sizes may vary slightly due to the availability of timber but will never be any smaller than those stated above
All wood chippings produced while making this item are recycled by converting into wood and paper briquettes for household burning.

This holder is made from old oak reclaimed from the roof of a local 18th century stone barn that was being renovated.
Please note that my turned wooden items rely for their effect by focusing on the grain, splits,defects and faults that occur naturally in reclaimed and fallen timber.

IF YOU HAVE A PIECE OF WOOD from a special place or are removing a tree from your garden why not have it made into something that will bring memories flooding back.
Please contact me to discuss specification and cost if you would like me to produce a bowl from your own wood.

Inspiration

These church candles were inspired by many visits to the beautiful churches of the Greek Islands of Corfu, Kefalonia and Ithaca and by the poem by the Greek poet K. P. Kavafis (C. P. Cavafy) written in 1911 and ends;

Always keep Ithaca fixed in your mind.
To arrive there is your ultimate goal.
But do not hurry the voyage at all.
It is better to let it last for long years;
and even to anchor at the isle when you are old,
rich with all that you have gained on the way,
not expecting that Ithaca will offer you riches.

Ithaca has given you the beautiful voyage.
Without her you would never have taken the road.
But she has nothing more to give you.

And if you find her poor, Ithaca has not defrauded you.
With the great wisdom you have gained, with so much experience,
you must surely have understood by then what Ithacas mean.
