I'm a huge fan of oak anyway, but this is the very first piece of brown oak burr that I've ever turned... and it's absolutely gorgeous.

The original burr was taken from a long-deceased English oak which had been attacked by Beefsteak Fungus (which adds the word 'brown') - and was harvested by my very own hands. It was then turned within two days, which means the finished bowl might still be subject to subtle changes as it thoroughly dries in a warm house.
It is already developing a lovely delicately-rippled texture around the curved rim, adding touchy-feeliness to what is already a visually-fascinating item.

Burr is known for its short shallow cracks, deep perforations, contrasting colours and higgledy-piggledy grain and this is a fine example of all of those traits, made even better with a few liberal coats of Danish oil. I can't wait to turn more!

Measures approx 150mm in diameter by 60mm deep, excluding the small foot of 4mm.
