Item details



root wood

A small bowl made from the root ball of an American hop hornbeam tree. This bowl features a flowing, organically shaped interior with the rich coloring and swirling grain patterns common to root wood. The exterior is a combination of coarse natural bark and flat-cut facets. The contrast between the polished, light-colored wood and the coarse dark bark give this piece charming visual and tactile appeal.

American hop hornbeam (or hophornbeam) 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 range from a creamy light beige to a pale reddish brown.

The tree this bowl was made from was uprooted in the last blizzard of the 2017-2018 winter. It's polished inside and out to a soft shine and coated with a food-safe finish. It would be perfect for holding candies, keys, paperclips or other desktop items, or simply enjoyed as a beautiful decoration.

7 inches in its longest dimension, about 5.5 inches wide, and 1.5 inches high (18 x 14 x 4 cm).
