A rare find of functional sculptural art Salt and Pepper Mill Set, hand carved from apple and oak woods, that is sure to stand out on any dining table or kitchen top.
This unique salt and pepper set is beautifully crafted by a Gloucestershire artisan to be used and loved every day.
From Richard, RS Rare Woods, the maker:
The applewood salt and pepper mills are made from branches of an old tree in my own garden. The trees were part of an orchard before the houses were built in 1904, making the trees approximately 140 - 150 years old, and still fruit every year. The branch had to be removed as it broke under the weight of the fruit on it one year.
The base is made in oak wood from a local high end cabinet maker's off-cut that was destined for either landfill or burning.
I turn wood in much the way a sculptor works with stone or marble, I let the wood tell me what it wants to be made into. The name of Rare Woods came about from the use of recovered timber, rather than exotic timber ... Knowing the provenance of the timber I turn, that is the rare part.
This salt and pepper set is beautifully presented in a box and is accompanied by a card and envelope, with a hand tied ribbon and bow added to finish.
