Shop Announcement:

A very warm welcome to our Folksy shop.

Our waney-edged cheeseboards, food planks, table-centres and conversation pieces are patiently crafted from native British wood. Our pieces are characterised by their dramatic grain configuration, gnarly knots, branch buds and burrs and eccentric form. All food boards are fine sanded and finished with food safe oil. We provide care kits for all of our boards.

From the Waney Grain lathe we create food-safe sommeliers, fruit bowls, elegant dishes and pretty trinket pots in a wide range of wood varieties and sizes.

We produce charming Christmas trees and snowmen in a range of sizes, from 2 inch to 10 inch and in a wide variety of woods. Finished to a high standard that leaves a silk-like feel, these beautiful ornaments are popular all year round, and our customers typically buy them in odd-number collections. We also make these as tree-dangles to hang from a real Christmas tree! The natural colour palettes are tremendously broad and varied, and we use no artificial dyes or stains. Our boxed sets of 3 tree-dangles and 7 variety sample sets make delightful gifts.

Our decorated trees, called our Fantasy Forest, are gilded with gold and silver leaf, and confetti metals called tamise and abburstig. We also use a range of gilding flakes called Cosmic Shimmer and Aurora Flakes when a specific colour and texture is desired. This style of gilding gives a dappled, textured look but feels smooth to the touch. The gilding is protected with a soft sealing varnish to prevent colour fade or tarnishing. Our 'Raw' range of trees are gilded without a wax preliminary sealer, so that the grain is more pronounced.

We create tea-light holders in flat form and as Christmas trees/snowmen.
We also create candle sticks and decorative ornaments including wooden goblets and wooden bottles.

We warmly welcome requests for a bespoke service, both for our boards and our turnery.

Description

This sweet little trio of gilded trees is part of our Moody Midnight Fantasy Forest collection. Shades of purple, slate/blue, magenta, plum, claret and copper have been chosen to capture the moody colours of a midnight forest! We turn these little trees from fine quality kiln dried native English hardwood, and select species with prominent and fascinating grain that glows through the gilding..

These charming little trees are approximately8 cms tall. They each have three skirts. I have gilded them using two fine leaf metals: a blue/slate/pink variegated leaf, and a blended confetti mix called Cosmic Shimmer 'Gemstones' and 'Mulled Wine'. They are raw gilded, which means that the grain is prominent and adds interest and the illusion of texture to each tree.

These little trees will look wonderful on a shelf, and I have displayed them in my primary picture with scattered acorns, wood curls and beech mast against a backdrop of pretty red tealight. I think this creates a wonderful context for these trees.

This little trio is not sold as a toy. Please help to protect the delicate gilding by keeping them out of direct and bright sunlight. This will help to preserve the pretty colours and keep them bright and beautiful!

This trio makes a wonderful gift and is presented as a boxed set, tied with purple ribbon.

Inspiration

These lovely trees are part of our 'Raw' collection, and we're just delighted with the way the grain fibres 'drink' the special adhesive (called size) at different rates. This means that when I add the leaf, it will adhere to some of the wood cells and not others. The effects are a delight! I have used a combination of leaf metals that accentuate the grain. and this brings the trees to life!

Our customers often say that our Christmas trees are too pretty to hide away until the festive season, and they earn their special year-round places on a shelf, a bookcase, a mantle-piece and a table! Our Moody Midnight collection is best displayed out of direct sunlight.
