Textured and scorched Magnolia pot from Sheringham Park.
Historically, wooden vessels were highly prized. If a piece developed a crack it would be repaired by stitching, usually with leather, and sometimes by fixing metal strips across the crack. The piece would then be used for dry goods. This piece has been stitched with copper wire.
Measures 115mm x 155mm high.
Magnolia Stitched Pot
These pots are extremely robust. This one has been finished with a paste wax however, a bit of polish now and again will help the wood keep its lustre. Keep it simple and use a spray polish and buff to a sheen. If you feel more energetic then apply some beeswax with a cloth and/or a soft brush and again buff to a sheen.
