Item details

Handmade

Material

root wood

A sweet little bowl made from a portion of root from an American hop hornbeam tree. The outside of the bowl shows the natural bark of this section of the root ball, and the interior has the interesting grain patterns and lovely variations in color found in root wood. American hop hornbeam root wood typically has creamy beige and pale reddish colors, but this piece also has a range of darker browns. The almost-black color and rough texture of the bark contrasts beautifully with the lighter colors and semigloss shine of the interior.

4-1/2 inches in its longest dimension, about 3-1/4 inches at its widest, and about 1-1/8 inches high (10.5 x 8 x 2.7 cm). A nice size for holding keys, earrings or other jewelry, a handful of small candies, or simply to enjoy as a beautiful decoration. The small size of this piece invites you to pick it up and handle it, perhaps contemplating the beauty and charm to be found in even the smallest pieces of nature.

I really enjoy making tiny bowls like this (I was a jeweler in years past), but they aren't the most sensible product to make from a financial standpoint. A small bowl takes more labor per inch of size than a larger bowl, but potential customers probably expect the price to be proportional to size. With that expectation in mind I'm charging less for this item than I would for a larger bowl that took the same amount of work. So take advantage of my bad financial sense and order now!
