Kitchen and tableware

A developing range of table and 
kitchenware which is both functional and beautiful. The objects we use in our homes should not only be useful, they should please the eye and delight the hand. 

Using a wide range of materials, including recycled and salvaged timbers, these pieces show off the surprising beauty that such timbers throw up. Hardwoods sometimes display a unique spalting caused by the chemical reaction  between iron nails, the extractives in the wood and moisture over time. Old nail holes, staining and spalting tell the previous histories of these timbers as agricultural buildings or fences. 

Using veneers salvaged from an abandoned Sydney supplier and FCS certified suppliers, salad servers are made using walnut, Queensland maple, rosewood, blackwood, sassafras, myrtle and leatherwood.

Allergy and care information

Salad servers are finished with low-allergy grapeseed oil but please check with all users if they have any allergies. Cheese boards and spoons are finished with food-approved high grade buffing oil which contains tung oil. 

Care instructions: Never place wooden utensils or boards in a dishwasher. Simply swipe with a damp cloth after use, or wash and rinse, making sure you wipe them dry as quickly as possible.
