Beech alter bowl
Made from a Beech (Fagus sylvatica) branch shed from the tree and this is the repaired union. The wood was cut from a much larger limb that fell during a storm.
The bowl is hand chiselled to reveal the tree's healing process inside. The pyrite ammonites set into the bowl were found by the artist whilst fossil hunting the Jurassic coast at Charmouth, Dorset.
Standing on spiralled hammered copper legs, copper salvaged from discarded electrical equipment.
Approx. diameter 3.5” (9cm) at its widest and Approx. 2.5” (6.5cm) tall
