Towie Sphere Stools No. 1, 2 & 3

A trio of stools crafted from one piece of Scottish Burr Elm. Designed after the Northern & Scottish style of simplicity, with reference to the Towie Sphere.

The ancient and enigmatic 5000 year old Scottish stone sphere is a icon and symbol of power. The spheres' surface pattern is echoed in the carving on the stools. The pattern is both hypnotic and a focus of meditation.

The stool, as an object, has an important place and functional history, within the Scottish home. Simplicity and subtlety of form are combined to create a strong yet elegant series.

Hand torching and inking have been used to impart depth of colour to the wood and to enhance the grain on the blackened surfaces.
