PIE | Vase
The Bread collection is inspired by Russian traditions. Its textures remind us of the fresh bread and of the boundless fields, where the wheatears grow. The collection comprises three textures, named «Field», «Wheatear» and «Pie».
Nowadays the traditional Russian cuisine is experiencing a renaissance — people become interested in traditional and organic products, while chefs discover and rethink old recipes. There is an old Russian proverb «Bread is the head of everything», which reveals the ingrained view that no feast could ever be complete without it.
This vase from the Beard collecton is made from oak. We use a dry wood (wood humidity is near 6-10%, that complies with standard for wood, which is used for making furniture). The board has two surfaces: decorative, coated a texture, and working, smooth. This gives you a ariety of ways how to use it – like a cutting board, a serving board or home decorating. The texture of the board is hand made using a chainsaw, as in case of other our things. The surface of the board is covered with linseed oil; it emphasizes texture of wood and protects it against mold.
The wood becomes water-repellent after processing with oil. The wood doesn’t crack neither shrink, and this oil coating is natural analogue of lacquer and absolutely harmless.Every single thing is original and unique due to the specificity of manual labor.
There are distinctive features like forms, little cracks and roughness, tone intensity, which are inevitably related to natural materials.The board is absolutely functional, and can be washed in the dishwasher. After washing, it is necessary to wipe it with a towel.
If necessary, you can refresh the cover by wiping the surface with a cloth moistened with linseed oil.
