maple wood


I already posted about naturally blackened maple some time ago. I love this contrast between light and simple inside of the scoop which is good for the tea leaves to stand out and black or heavily ornamented outer surface. I am experimenting with different approach to the outer surface treating. You basically have three options here. You can leave it completely natural, you can sand a polish it a bit or you can remove some of the blackened layer which gives you very nice patterns. All three surfaces are very interesting and beautiful. I try to take a picture of it, hard to get on the photo.
