Tiny round box, small enough to cup in your hands, is handmade from the dark wood of the cocobolo tree of Central America. Its smooth roundness is beautifully crafted ( wood turned) with a fine ridge for the lip of the lid, which fits snugly and securely. Perfect for gift giving - use it as a small trinket box for earrings or cufflinks.Don White works mostly with English timbers, producing pieces with uncluttered forms which emphasise the natural beauty found in burr and spalted wood. These are sometimes enhanced with carving, texturing and colour. He particularly enjoys the challenge of turning thin-walled bowls from ‘wet’ wood which, when dry, takes on a sculptural free-form quality and sometimes so thin as to be translucent.
Like many true craftsmen he believes that there is no substitute for the discipline of repetition work to hone one’s skills enabling the natural progression to more advanced individual work.
