Handcrafted by gnomes, this is a bark-sided Oak bowl.

First, The Story:

While searching the woods for fallen trees one day this spring, I stumbled upon a tiny encampment, hidden away in a mossy glade. Completely hidden by dense brush, this little streamside village was now abandoned.

It took a while, but I finally realized this was a gnome camp, something I had heard about but never encountered. And here it was. They had apparently lived here for some time, in small shelters under huge, twisted tree roots along the stream. Their beds were tufts of velvety moss, with a mound of feathers on top. There was a tiny campfire, now cold. Wood chips and shavings were everywhere; someone had been working hard.

They must have left in a hurry for some reason, because they left behind a number of diminutive utensils, mostly bowls newly fashioned from the trees. Bowls no bigger than a coffee cup.

This bowl:

This is the fifth of those wooden gnome bowls. It's 8" long, 5" wide, 1-1/2" high, made from Oak. The underside is all natural bark, with some green/gray lichens still clinging to the bark; the hollow of the bowl is just 2-1/2" in diameter.

It has a finish of tung oil applied to the upper surface, which has been buffed with hard wax.
