This trug has been hand made by “The Trug Maker” who is based in Takaka. They are stunning baskets/trugs. I have burnt a North Island Robin and blossom design on it. Approximately 56cm x 32cm
This is a glass orb. It has 3 indents on the sides and and indent coming up from the bottom, which means it sits level. There is a hole in the top, so could be hung. I have no idea what it was used for, but I think its rather special now with the trees etched on it. Approximately 20cm round and 19cm high.
A lovely amber glass bottle. This is a new bottle made to look old, and has a plastic screw top lid. Because its Autumn I have etched a dried leaf design, which really pops against the amber glass. Approximately 21cm high.
This is an usual piece, a wooden bottle, that is not completely hollow. You could put a candle in it maybe a few dried flowers or just as it as a decorative piece. I have burnt a Kotare (Kingfisher) design onto the bottle. Approximately 32.5 cm high.
A coffee table with quite a dramatic design, so will certainly make a statement. Wire has been wrapped around a front leg and opposite back leg, to add a bit of extra. Approximately 59.5cm x 39.5cm and stands 46cm high.
This bowl, which I think is Mahogany is just enormous and the largest I have worked on. In full sunlight, the wood just glows!!! See other photos taken in the shade. I have oiled the bowl with walnut oil so its safe to use with food. The bowl is 42.5cm round and 9cm deep.
This is a long platter / bowl which is a monkey pod from the Philippines. I have added some flowers and a couple of fantails. I have oiled the platter with walnut oil so its safe to use with food. Approximately 59.5 cm x 11 cm and 5cm high.
This vase is solid marble and is extremely heavy. I really enjoyed hand etching it with a Seahorse. Marble is lovely to work with. Approximately 24.5cm tall.
This glass container is just such a gorgeous blue colour, that I had to etch it. I have added a magnolia flower to this little blue glass. Approximately 7.5cm round and 8.5 cm high.
A lovely chopping board now with a roaring lion and a Dr Seuss saying “Why fit in when you were born to stand out”, I love Dr Seuss and especially his quotes. I have oiled this board with walnut oil so its safe to use with food. Approximately 36cm x 24cm and 1.5cm thick.
