Keith Allen, our Orkney based wood turner, makes the wood sing with joy in this wonderful Yew sphere.
The Yew tree is one of the longest living trees in northern Europe and is often found in church yards and ancient woodland. Yew’s Gaelic name is iubhair or euair and is often associated with fairies and ancient worship which pre-dates Christianity.
The beauty of the hard yew wood shines out from the inside of this hand turned exquisite spherical container with its own stand made from beech.
