A Thing Of Beauty is a Joy Forever!
the woodturning of Jason Smith R.P.T.
Dyed Limed Ash Bowl (Large)
Approximate Dimensions H 7.5cm x D 30cm
Materials; Kentish Ash, Spirit Dye, Liming Wax
Finish: Oiled and waxed.
Liming of wood (mainly Oak) is a well known and age old, treatment of wood, however few people in modern times seem to be aware of the beauty of limed Ash.
With this piece of work I have taken a traditional, time-honoured method and given it a modern quirk by introducing a dye to the wood first. The liming wax, which bleaches the wood, also bleaches the dyes, and a subtle, muted effect is achieved by controlling the exposure of the wood to the wax.
After the excess liming wax is removed I have used an oil and carnuba wax finish on the wood, to highlight the natural beauty of the wood, and to provide a permanent food-safe seal to the bowls
