Jayne Armstrong Footed Vessel in Sycamore

Maker: Jayne Armstrong

Regular price $607.00

Handmade in France.

Dimensions: Ø20cm x H14cm 

Materials: Sycamore

Method: Sourced from an artist friend’s garden in Pleugriffet in Brittany, this sycamore vessel retains its natural colour. Turned on a lathe using hand-held gouges. A very subtle wax finish has been used to protect the wood.

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 vessel creates a balanced juxtaposition between the sturdy footed base and the chiffon-like rim. Retaining its natural colouring, this piece is shaped from sycamore and exhibits a faded yet unmistakable grain pattern. 


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.
