About this set:
This piece of vessel that might be used as a bowl for displaying your tea and the same time to weigh the tea before drinking it. Nicely seen wood annual ring that really hard to carve out and so that are rarely seen in such form. The wave like curves are balanced evenly.
Pieces like this are born under hands of a craftsman, they are coming alive while carved and they are never imitated. No copies as Milan said. Lately asked for a similar vessel to be carved failed with a piece that he could not finish. I asked him last time I met him, ‘why don’t you use a logo, a mark to identify you pieces?’. He said ‘ these pieces are me and they are not the logo, I am not the brand. Then I realized how true this is. The art piece itself is the brand.
These wooden pieces went through a long ‘process of creation’. Milan, the woodcarver, finds pieces in a forest, pieces that are ‘dead wood’. Takes them home and then have these pieces await their ‘fate’. Wooden pieces are carved only when time allows Milan to work on them. Slowly wooden pieces are formed into usable tools. Carving and polishing takes ages (days) to have a final scoop ready to use. Each piece has natural oil applied that was tried for years and does not get stale.
