Edition of 24
Constructional grade Russian red pine, laminated and hand turned.
A series of stools whose forms flow within several parameters. They consist of a steep cone foot and a bulbous belly. Some pieces are stained with a unique shade of murky green/black, others left natural - each piece once turned is assessed and given treatment accordingly.
They are then hand lacquered with 8 layers of marine epoxy which is sanded and buffed to a smooth thick coating. The epoxy is then topped off with a hard polyurethane varnish. This gives a bright and sharp finishing layer. The combination of finishes gives the pieces a fully UV stable super high gloss hard wearing surface.
