I love to work with wood that has some story behind, that has lived somewhere. It was destined to end but now new journey begins when reworked. This time it is the old piece of oak flooring from our house, we needed to repair some part of our parquetry and this was removed. For more that a century it was a part of our house. Beautifully aged piece of wood living another life.

This was cooking in my head for some time. I was contemplating about using some natural colorant to color the wood. It is always fun to try something new. Here I am using powder from old brick to color the surface of the wood and also to add some interesting texture. I am quite happy with the results. It looks and feels great and I like the clay and wood connection. The brick powder is mixed with shellac and then the natural hard oil is applied as a final finish. Here the poplar wood with brushed outer surface is used for the tea scoop, I think that it goes well with the red color.
Some pieces are up on KlasekTea. Thank you! http://www.darjeeling.cz/en/accessories/wooden-tea-utensils
