manitoba oak

During the Christmas holidays Irian and I spent some time in Doug’s shop. We wanted to make a small project that didn’t need a lot of power tools. Doug had some slices of manitoba oak that were slightly curved from damp that he said we could use. I used the sander to smooth the edges to a circle and finished it with varnish. Because of the curve of the wood its shaped like a little bowl or saucer and I use it to put things like earrings in.


I'm a fabric designer fascinated with the intricacies of seamless repeats. I enjoy creating vector designs as well as working with linoprint and watercolour. I've lived in 5 countries and love to use special places and memories in my designs.
