From Whirl & Whittle’s studio collection, 'Not Whole, But Complete', this bowl features fluid rims and sculptural forms without sacrificing functionality— ‘Not Whole, But Complete’ centers on appreciating appreciating beauty from what is seen as brokenness. The pieces take their ethos from the Japanese art of Kintsugi. The founder draws inspiration from the wisdom of Kintsugi - highlighting the pivotal moment in the life of an object.
Good to know: Spalting is a form of wood coloration caused by fungi. It predominantly occurs in dead trees but can also occur in living trees undergoing stress. Spalting causes weight loss and strength loss in the wood and yet is sought by woodworkers.
PLEASE NOTE: This item is made-to-order with lead times being approximately 2-3 weeks. Due to spalting on these woods, the pattern and grain will vary significantly from piece to piece. Those pictured show some of the variation.
