when carving a bowl i start by just looking at the wood grain. i try go with the flow of the natural characteristics present. i've started trying to leave the natural bark on the edges. this sometimes becomes difficult because your chopping and the vibration loosens the bark. i really enjoy the polished wood and the natural edge together. i feel it brings balance to the piece. my goal really is to try and just let the bowl flow into creation. i do use a rotary sander to clean out and do the final sanding.

this bowl was carved from a limb of a local reclaimed Apricot tree that had died in my neighbor's backyard. i carved this bowl in 2007. it was on display at Red Butte Gardens sustainable art show and a few other local galleries. i'm finely ready to let it go now. at the time it was the one of the best bowls i had carved and i've been reluctant to part with it. it speaks nature with the live edge and small worm hole in the out side edges.

the bowl measures:
12 1/8" long X 11 1/2" wide and about 6 1/4" tall.
about 5 5/8" deep on the inside.

i used a finish made from citrus, pure linseed oil and beeswax. the finish was made by bio-shield. i believe in using non-toxic deep penetrating finishes, 7+ coats. to maintain the bowls finish you can use a clean lemon oil or any clean natural non-died beeswax based finishing paste. the figure curl in this bowl looks very translucent and with proper lighting 3 dimensional. hand signed with a wood burning pen.

shipping will include insurance with tracking.

thanks for taking the time to see my creations
