A beautiful bowl with lots of character made from a portion of root from an ash tree. The cross-section of the root at this point gives the bowl an elongated and squiggly shape, and the interior has the beautiful grain patterns and variations in color often found in root wood. This bowl has particularly interesting grain figure, with colors that range from creamy white to butter-yellow to reddish and brown. There's also a crack visible in the interior that dates back to when the tree fell over and uprooted itself. Meanwhile, the almost-black color and rough texture of the bark contrasts beautifully with the lighter colors and smooth shine of the interior. Wood with this sort of shape and grain figure can only be found in root wood, and a bowl that follows a wild organic shape like this can only be made by hand-carving.

9 inches in its longest dimension, about 5 inches at its widest, and about 1-1/2 inches high (23 x 13 x 3.5 cm). A nice size for holding candies, miscellaneous desk items or simply to enjoy as a beautiful decoration. The intricate grain and wide variety of colors of this piece invites long and peaceful contemplation as you turn it this way and that to view it from different angles.

Another amazing work of art from this artist which I am lucky enough to be able to admire and enjoy every day! The bowl was carefully packed and arrived safely when promised.

The origins [source of the wood] of this piece sounded intriguing - roots of a storm downed tree [I think]. The wood species - an heavy, dense ironwood - equally so. The appearance in photos only added to that mystery - rough, dark outer bark skin and creamy smooth interior. What would result? Well, in the hands of someone who understood and respected that combination, a most wonderful and satisfying object....a bowl that could not just be looked at but one that demanded it be picked up and touched. The results are exceptionally remarkable. While the appearance may be a bit unbridled, the feel is amazing with the smoothest interior surface imaginable, more akin to marble than wood. I'll be after more so better hurry!

This is a very cute, silky smooth bowl/dish with an obvious irregular shape. I have never ordered anything quite like it, but it is very sweet and would work as a little “catch all”. It arrived in good time and overall I recommend this shop. I need to go back and look again in case I missed something! : )
