spalted beech


ANTONIA is a turned wood candle holder handmade from a beautiful piece of spalted beech. I responsibly sourced the wood in Franklin County, Kentucky. When not in use as a candle holder, the wood bowl easily doubles as a ring, change, or trinket holder.

Remnants of inner bark are visible on the exterior, and natural cracks can be seen on the exterior and interior of the vessel. I reinforced all of these naturally occurring cracks. The inner bark and cracks are not considered flaws but contribute to the unique beauty of the wood.

This turned wood candle holder measures approximately 4-3/8″ wide, 1-3/4″ tall, and 1-1/4″ deep. I finished the wood with high friction polish to enhance the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the beech wood.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
