Jayne Armstrong Oak Bowl Form

Maker: Jayne Armstrong

Regular price $552.00

Handmade in France.

Dimensions: Ø20cm x H10cm 

Materials: Oak

Method: Sourced from a neighbouring village, this oak piece has been turned on a lathe from green wood to less than 1mm thickness. Once finished, the piece was filled with its own shavings before being left to dry naturally, allowing the piece to find its form. It is incredibly light in weight and lightly flexible thus defying expectations of oak, normally known for its weight and hardness.

Care: These pieces are largely sculptural and should be handled with care and kept away from sources of direct sunlight and heat. Each piece has a protective finish. They should not be washed, but wiped clean with a damp cloth from time to time to remove dust.



This oak bowl reveals a beautiful natural ‘wave’ patterning in the wood, creating a subtle gradient of colour. Paper-thin with a rounded base, this piece seems to embody a lively, buoyant character.


About the Artist

Jayne Armstrong is an artist and maker in wood. Jayne works primarily in fresh, green wood to explore the sculptural and aesthetic possibilities of a material that moves and changes shape as it dries. Her work is intended to play with the boundary between sculpture and function and to challenge expectations of the material itself. The resulting forms are fluid, undulating and frequently monochromatic in tone.

Jayne’s background as an academic within the field of cultural studies informs and underpins her approach to her work. Her work is experimental and exploratory, drawing from art history, design history and philosophy. She describes her work as a dialogue between material, concept, technology and technique.
