Sitting stool and accent piece cut from a solid block of green wood. In these pieces, simple, contemporary form has been applied to a natural material that will break the form as it ages, making each piece unique.
The piece is cut from a solid block of freshly cut domestic ash or maple. The surface splits as it ages and dries, giving each piece a unique look. Ring and heartwood details have been preserved and featured on the seat. Like much of Kalon Studios’ work, Stump explores the playful relationship between the inherent variations of natural materials and the precision of contemporary form. All the lumber used is sustainably harvested. No finish has been applied to best allow the piece to develop a natural patina as it ages. These materials were thoughtfully selected to offer a piece with no toxins and no off-gassing, for the environment, the craftspeople and you.
Uncompromising in design and quality, Stump is sustainably made from the highest quality, natural materials in the United States by the finest traditional craftspeople.
Made from solid, Ash or Maple green wood. Pieces are sanded but not finished.
Green wood is wood that has been recently cut and therefore has not had an opportunity to season by evaporation of the internal moisture.
Pieces made with ‘green’ wood will warp and split as they age. This is an intended part of the design.
