All shall be well and all shall be well … all manner of thing shall be well. That’s the inscription on the spalted beech bowl shown below. The quotation is from a piece by Julian of Norwich who was writing in 1395. I think it’s the earliest writing by a woman in English.
I bought the bowl, it was a very poorly carved thing and I did quite a lot of work to it. The spangly glitter is just to pimp it up a bit, the wood is a little porous in places.
It’s a quotation that I’ve enjoyed and I’ve wanted to carve it on something for a while now.
I’ve been cutting up birch by the log full for a while now… I’m aiming to do my 3rd table, but the wood has to dry. It’s all stacked in my airing cupboard for the winter. I’ll probably make a start around Christmas time.
Weather’s great … hugs to all
