Description

I almost feel like I shouldn't bother with a description of this item, and should just let the photographs speak for themselves. Made from a section of the root of a fallen red oak tree, this shallow bowl has some truly remarkable grain figure and coloration, beautifully set off by the coarse dark bark that forms the outer surface of the piece. In the interior of the bowl you can see intricately swirling grain, a dark bark inclusion, a knot from a branching section of root, and even some spalting. (Spalting is a color effect in wood caused by different varieties of fungus; in this piece the black squiggly lines in the narrow end of the bowl are spalting.) It's finished with a tung oil varnish blend.

In the close-up photos you can see some of the marvelously intricate detail to be found in the wood of this bowl. There are swirling lines reminiscent of van Gogh's "Starry Night," endless variations in color, bands of tiny dots that are the characteristic pores of red oak summer wood, the convoluted black boundary lines of the spalting noted above, and more. This is some of the most beautiful wood I've ever seen.

9.25 inches in its longest dimension, about 6.75 inches wide and 1.25 inches high (23 x 17 x 3 cm). A nice size for holding chocolates or miscellaneous desk items. Or perhaps best of all, just keep it on a desk, dresser or side table to enjoy the festival of natural beauty it displays.
