Kenny Woods

Kenny is a Scottish wood carver who sculpts bowls,platters, vases and other objects from hardwood.   Some his sculptures are beautiful sections of elm burr sliced, polished, oiled and mounted onto plinths.

His speciality is in working with burr from elm trees, often leaving the intricate outer side of the burr exposed. He also uses a method of charring the wood to create beautiful oiled blackened works. The wood is preserved by charring the surface with a hot flame, leaving some of the work charred or the complete work blackened.
