Swan River Mahogany

Jarrah (Swan River Mahogany) along with many other varieties of hard wood trees once grew throughout South Western Australia, including the suburbs of Perth. These timbers have been wasted over the years until the present position of a scarcity of good (furniture grade) timber.

Swan River Mahogany uses recycled Jarrah and Marrie timber to draw attention to this situation. The work employs the form of a jarrah tree nut/seed pod.
