  • yew
    Although a softwood, the timber of this native British species is very dense and strong. The wood is golden-brown in tone, close-grained and polishes to a fine finish; and as the trunks tend to twist, the wood is often beautifully figured. Yew has been a popular medium for the framework of country-made furniture since the 16thC, and from the 17th for turned drawer knobs and spindles; in the following century the sticks, bows and legs of the best quality windsor chairs were of yew. Yew, particularly the whorled and knotted burr wood, has also been used as a veneer, and was favoured by 20thC artist-craftsmen such as Ernest gimson and Sir Gordon russell.

The wares - mainly bowls - survive today having been dug up from burial grounds, but have also been reproduced in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
