Dimensions

Height: 1.25 Inches; Width: 7 Inches

A small bowl with a softly rounded interior and an exterior that's a combination of crisp flat-cut facets and areas of the original bark. This piece has the swirling grain patterns common to root wood, with subtle colors in a mix of pale and creamy beiges. This subtlety makes it a bowl that rewards close examination rather than one that shouts out its presence from across the room. I can attest that it's a piece that's truly a pleasure to turn over and over in one's hands.

This little bowl is made from the root wood of an American hop hornbeam (or hophornbeam) tree. This is a fairly common understory tree in my area, and is one of several species sometimes referred to as ironwood. As that name implies, it's a dense, hard wood. The root woods of many species of tree are dark in color, but the colors of hop hornbeam root wood are pale, with this bowl being a particularly light-colored example.

The tree this bowl was made from was uprooted during a blizzard in the winter of 2017-2018. It's polished inside and out to a gleaming shine and coated with a food-safe finish. It would be perfect for holding small candies, nuts, jewelry, or simply enjoyed as a beautiful decoration.

7.25 inches in its longest dimension, about 5.25 inches wide, and about 1.25 inches high (19 x 13 x 3 cm).
