Barking Up The Wrong Log

44 × 23 × 23 cm

scorched seasoned oak


Charlotte Kingsnorth’s approach to design welds functionality with a personal exploration of materiality, form, and the subversive. The notched markings found on the bark of a birch tree have been borrowed to make a new coat for this collection, humorously entitled Barking Up the Wrong Log. The surface of the log sections is blackened using a charring technique learnt from a 18th-century Japanese method of preserving wood. Shortlisted for the Wood Awards 2020.
