Black, bog, antique. Oak. Bog wood excavated from water.
Centuries ago, as a result of a rise in the sea levels and change of weather conditions, great floods and changes of river directions occurred. Fallen trees fell to river beds and were covered by river mud.
They lay there for tens, hundreds, thousands of years, not only under water, but even deeper, under the river mud. With no access to oxygen and light, they slowly developed unique resistance and aesthetic values. It was there that their unique structure and colour were developed. It is in rivers that the natural process of creation of a perfect material started, it was there that the slow fossilization process occurred. Wood from the water has dense rings, it is free of resins and saturated with minerals which increase its hardness and durability. Little processing is required to obtain a “diamond”.
Experts of the matter call it the rarest, unique, one of the most valuable wood types. No, it is not for everyone. It is for those who look for a material far from the average. For those who can perceive and bring out its artistic value.
A large piece of wood may form a base for a true piece of art. Bog oak seduces artists, architects, interior designers, designers of furniture and other luxurious goods.
