beaver chewed tree stump

I can only take partial credit for this bowl. As you can see, the outside has been beautifully carved and sculpted by my industrious coworkers, the beavers. The bowl is somewhat asymmetrical, as it follows both the shape of the tree trunk and the whims of the beavers as they chose where to chew into the tree to bring it down. On one side of the bowl you can see a few remnants of the tree's bark.

Personally, I find endless delight and fascination in the grooved and facetted contours of these beaver-cut tree stumps. It's a wonderful example of how objects from nature can be not only beautiful, but imbued with artistry. The beavers certainly had no intention of making something creative and beautiful when they cut down this tree, but nonetheless they accomplished exactly that.

About 6 inches in diameter and 3 inches high (15 x 7.5 cm). The bowl is finished with polyurethane on the outside and a durable food-safe finish on the inside. It's suitable for hot or cold foods such as cereal, soups, fruit, etc. Strongly staining foods such as beets should be avoided, and the bowl should be hand washed without soaking. Care instructions will be included with the bowl. Of course, it can also be used purely as decoration.
