The form of Mac Collins’ Bowl is definite and unwavering in its evocation of sturdiness and stability. A low centre of gravity is achieved by a shallow bowl elevated, like a platform, on top of thick legs. The Bowl is confident, advertising its longevity, to provoke a long-lasting attachment through their endearing character, but their design is also a reply to the specific qualities of pine; ‘It was important to me that the design would be as honest and deliberate as the material’. The qualities of the wood are shown off through a combination of straight lines and curves, horizontal and vertical grains.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine.
Choose from two sizes; medium and large.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, PEFC certified and slow grown.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
