material_play HERE WE WANT IT BURNT! by Annabelle Guldner

Check out this cool material - charred wood. Ever thought about using burnt wood as a decorative material?

It can be used for interior wall coverings, exterior cladding or exterior pavers and decking! The process originated in Japan, where they burnt wood to preserve and antique it. It's called Shou-Sugi-Ban which translates to burnt cedar board. The look is really cool with a unique texture and rich, deep almost black color. There are different degrees of charring resulting in various textures, and colors. It's yet another way to give wood a unique character and try something different! Any type of wood can be used, original it was driftwood exposed to harsh climates, therefore you can achieve an expensive look with wood you would never think of using for a finished product!

This was such a fun transformation! It was a industrial pendant that I found and wanted to turn into something unexpected and unique. It has become a light table with a glass and metal mesh top. The leg was created from vent piping and a painted plywood base. We love using this piece outdoors on our porch as a table and indirect light source! It's just fun!
