VINTAGE TREENWARE VESSELS

Style

The term Treen is of Old English origin and means "of a tree" and became the generic name for small handmade functional objects made of turned wood. Treenware was typically handmade in the 18th and 19th centuries, but these more modern pieces were created by contemporary artists in the 1980's and 1990's from the same technique of turning wood. The selection of different wood species was always important and this collection was created using and marrying an array of exotic woods to great effect.
