A beautifully simple plate hand-turned using British oak. At the table, these plates are perfectly suited for small starters, sharing plates or cheeses.

"Each day after school my little boys returns home ravenous, this little plate filled with slices of pear, a scoop of raisins and an oat biscuit served at the table with a lit candle has become a daily ritual in our home." Alice, founder of Object Story

Each plate is individually hand-turned from quarter-sawn English Oak. The slow growth and long drying process result in a fantastically rich, characterful wood.

Selwyn House

Selwyn House is formed by Sean Best and Ellie Smalls, who met studying Fine Art at Leeds Arts University.

Always drawn to making things, Sean bought a second-hand lathe and began teaching himself woodturning. Combining their creative talents, Sean & Ellie began to create small-batch handmade serveware & homeware from the best British-grown timbers they could get their hands on.
