Vernaculaire

With the wood grain

, par cyriaque ambroise

Experiencing and re-appropriating different heritage (vernaculaire) techniques and traditional craft skills. Taking the time to make by hand, conscientiously, with simple handtools. A meditative process to create unique pieces from natural and raw materials.

Vernaculaire - With the wood grain
Collection of spoons | Different woods, organic vegetable oil
Different places | June to August 2018

Spoons slow made from locally salvaged branches or tree trunks. Hand carved using only simple tools (handsaw, axe and knives). An ecological process as an alternative to plastic or metal. Unique pieces with wood’s natural grain left unpolished, painted or stained to take a nice patina over time.
