Chopping Board/Platter | Swamp Kauri 29cm

DESCRIPTION

This timber is sourced from local communities and small suppliers, and the board has been treated with pure tung oil and beeswax, which are both natural, chemical free and food safe.

Approximate Diameter 29cm, Height 4.5cm.

Cleaning wood is easy and simple, hand wash with warm soapy water, and rinse off.

Avoid leaving the platter to soak in water. Not recommended for use in strong sunlight as this may cause discolouration and dries the wood. Pure linseed oil, walnut oil, pure tung oil, or beeswax can be used for rejuvenating the wood.

ABOUT the MAKER

Walk in the Park

Drawn to Walk In The Park for their sensibility to material, their work is homage to the variations of wood available in New Zealand. This tactile devotion extends into their desire to create products that are both beautiful and functional, blending the organic with the domestic. Walk In The Park is a pleasure to use, to hold and to simply admire. Sculptural and exquisitely produced, each piece is quiet in detail, yet brilliant in form.

Walk in the Park believe in a simple, honest approach to design where aesthetics and utility are intrinsic.
