This is a very large gorgeous vintage tray. It was originally very dark, but when I sanded it back the beautiful lighter coloured wood underneath which also made the carved flower design stand out more. So this was a challenge for me to burn a design that worked in with the carving and yip I think I nailed it!! There is nice detail around the edges and indented handles underneath – I have left the underside original so you can see how dark it was. Great sized tray and would also look good on the wall. Approximately 57cm x 42.5cm and 2cm thick. Price includes post and packaging.
This is a vintage container with a stainless steel lid. The exterior was originally very dark, but I have sanded it back to reveal a lovely light coloured wood. I have hand burnt a Dragonfly flying amongst the Lavender which covers all 3 sides. A handy item that looks great. Approximately 10cm x 10cm and 13cm high. Price includes post and packaging.
This is a gorgeous hand turned Matai platter. It is a beautiful piece of Matai, quite heavy and has lovely detail around the edges. I have hand burnt a flying Tauhou (silver eye bird) encircled by Manukau flowers. On the back the maker of platter has written NZ Matai, A & B Phillips of Nelson, so a lovely NZ piece. I have finished it with walnut oil, so its safe to use with food. Approximately 28.5cm in diameter. Price includes post and packaging.
I LOVE this piece. I have never seen anything like it before. It is a stunning green round bottle, almost like a light bulb in shape, quite thick glass and a stunning green colour. It has a little silver coloured stand, so you can place the bottle in any position and it will stay. I think there is quite a bit of age to the piece, the stand is quite heavy and maybe brass with a silver coating and the bottle is very thick glass. I haven’t done any major cleaning of the stand as I like the patina, but I think it would come up quite shiny. I have hand etched a dragonfly on the bottle which stands out beautifully on the green glass. Approximately 16cm high including the stand. Price includes post and packaging.
This is a lovely heavy solid piece of clear glass. It is square in shape with nice rounded corners. I have hand etched a dandelion and fairies to the top of the paperweight. Approximately 13cm x 13cm and just over 2cm thick. Price includes post and packaging.
This box is stunning, made out of Kauri with 3 drawers. The top two drawers are sectioned off and the 3rd is open, with 2 wooden handles per drawer and round button feet. Kauri is so lovely to burn a design into and I love that gorgeous honey colour. A real craftsperson has made this box as it beautifully made. I have hand burnt a vintage design with a dragonfly to the top and sides of the box. Approximately 29cm x 18cm and 21cm high. Price includes post and packaging.
This is a large Rimu frame that we have added some chicken wire to. The wire means you can hang jewellery, photos, sayings, shopping lists its endless really. I have hand burnt a repeating floral pattern all around the outside. The dark burning contrasts really well with the colour of the wood. Approximately 44cm x 92cm. Price includes post and packaging.
A beautiful reclaimed pine board, with amazing grain. I have used the grain as the inspiration for the board, as it looked like a desert to me. So I hand burnt a tree and elephant design onto the grain. The board is lovely and thick and has been finished with walnut oil so its safe to use with food. Approximately 29cm x 42cm and 3.5cm thick. Price includes post and packaging.
This is quite a large heavy Mahogany platter, that is curved with handles and feet. I have hand burnt a tree design with 2 birds, with quite heavy burning so it will show up against the rich colour of the Mahogany. It almost looks like I have embossed the wood with my design. I have finished the platter with walnut oil, so its safe to use with food. Approximately 49.5cm from handle to handle and 27.5cm wide. Price includes post and packaging.
This is a lovely long vintage wooden box with a clasp. This box definitely has some age to it and we added a vintage style clasp, just to finish it off. I have hand burnt a vintage design with a daisy chain, that I think is in keeping with its age. Provides great storage while looking amazing!! Approximately 41cm x 17.5cm and 5cm deep. Price includes post and packaging.
