Recent heavy rain and wind has brought down a veteran Field Maple stem that has abundant epicormic growths which should provide specialist bowl turners with exceptional stock materials.

The stem is off the ground and can be cut to suit turner.

This stem has now been snapped up by Sally Burnett ace wood turner and glass / wood artiste and will be used for the production of exceptional and unique wooden treen.

Sally says (on her website) :-

For many years I have specialised in the design and manufacture of glass vessels and panels and large ceramic installations, for both private and commercial clients.

More recently, I have become fascinated with wood, particularly creating work from freshly felled trees, timber known as green wood. A living material that moves and twists as you work it. The shapes and textures that can be created are endless. It is a material which can be used to create both practical items and artistic creations. It can be manipulated by the artist but the many inclusions, knots and grain patterns often dictate shape and design forcing the artist to reconsider a piece during the making process. It is both a pleasure to work green wood and a challenge. SB

On a cool winters day wood turner Sally Burnett & chainsaw trainer John Spibey arrived in a Land Rover pulling an Ifor Williams trailer ready to start dismembering the burr field maple.

After much discussion, decision making and chainsaw buzzing the burr field maple log was gone.

Loaded onto the trailer ready for the long trek back to the Midlands.

I am now looking forward to seeing what artistic pheonix arises from the sawdust !
