The design is inspired by rhythmic markings that can be found throughout Scottish heritage. At a time in history, blue pigment was once more valuable than gold. Caitlin uses the colour blue to attribute value to the wood, working with reclaimed wood so each piece takes on a unique shade of blue.
Materials – Reclaimed oak holly wood with bronze, oxidised silver and steel pin.
Dimensions – 60x80x20mm
Technique – Chasing, a technique that dates back to the 2nd century BC, is the process that allows Caitlin to translate her drawings into metal with the use of hand forged tools. The wood is dyed blue to enhance and celebrate the linear markings of the grain.
Care Instructions – Lightly polish metal elements with metal polishing cloth. Do not submerge wood in water. A suitable cleaning cloth will be supplied.
Expected turnaround time including posting – 7 days
