Banksia small jar
By Darren Appiagyei
The Banksia nut l is a wild flower from Australia , naturally has a beautiful texture and when Darren works with the material, it simply is about embracing the intrinsic beauty of the wood. Enhancing the material and allowing the material to speak for itself instead of refining or polishing it into something that it may not be. It’s an exploration of the 3 different layers of the material; the first layer being the crispy texture, the second layer being the velvet almost felt texture and finally the third layer which has a wood texture and is the core of the material.
