About Owen Thomas
Pole lathe turned Damson Quaich
Sweet little drinking vessels traditionally used for drinking whisky. The damson wood is very close grained has some wonderful figuring. Damson is a particularly hard wood, so it is rather difficult to turn but the wonderful pinks and purples in the wood are well worth the effort.
These are turned on a pole lathe and hand carved with a knife.
Finished with locally produced beeswax
3.5 inch diameter (5inch including handles)
