Beefwood Bowl

Beefwood Bowl

A free form Beefwood bowl with copper leaf gilding.

Often it’s the simplest of details that combine to make something as stunning as this.  A highlight here and a curve there placed exactly where they need to be.  In many cases it is absolutely intended and in others, not so much.

The term Beefwood is a generic term that is given to some woods.  That term is applied to fresh cut timber that resembles Beef.  This particular Beefwood Bowl is Grevillea Striata.  It is in the same family as Silky Oak, however it differs significantly in hardness and growth rate.  Beefwood is extremely hard and slow growing.  I would not like to estimate the age of this piece of timber but I suspect it’s almost certainly hundreds of years old.

And, of course this Beefwood is not the only slow growing thing around.  On or around 2008 when the financial crisis hit, that was when capitalism stopped growing.

In actual fact, as far as I can see, it was the point in time that capitalism started to consume itself.  And yes, capitalism is a self consuming system.  The next stage is fascist totalitarianism.  If you have a look around the place, not in here, the world, you’ll see it everywhere.  You could start with the WEF if you need pointed in the right direction.
