Pippy Yew Vessel IV
Pippy Yew Vessel IV forms part of a collection of very special decorative work, created by wood artist Anthony Bryant. Crafted from ecologically felled timber and turned on a lathe whilst the wood was still green, the ‘pippy’ Yew from which the material for these pieces is derived was an unforgettable acquisition for Anthony. The term ‘pippy' is recognised in the timber world to describe a very tight burr grain. Obtained almost by chance after the timber dealer admitted he was looking for someone who could do the tree justice, these vessels represent a journey of exploration and a summer of labour-intensive work. The Yew’s defining features are now immortalised in a series of one-off pieces; from the unique grain pattern, to the intriguing heart splits that the artist has skillfully incorporated into each thinly-walled pot.
