Box Elder and Walnut Bowl
This was one of those special pieces. As I began to turn, spectacular colors appeared, red, pink, gray and various colors of brown. This posed the problem of when to stop turning to bring the best features forward. I think the timing was just right on this piece. I hope you agree. The rim of the bowl, base and finial was turned from black walnut in complementary colors of chocolate brown. A very unusual branch knot appears on the lid on this piece. This piece would make an extraordinary gift. Finished with a high gloss finish and buffed with Renaissance Wax. It measures approximately 5” tall and 3” wide.
Oklahoma Spalted Hickory Lidded Bowl
If you are one for nature’s art, this bowl is the one for you, with very strong black pencil-lines over the entire surface. The contrast between the creamy tan grain, the intermixed brown and bold black lines really define the character. The antique brass knob on top compliments the piece. Finished with a high gloss finish. It measures approximately 3.5” tall and 4: wide.
Box Elder and Rosewood Lidded Bowl
This small Box Elder bowl was turned from a tornado that damaged portions of Edmond, Oklahoma. It has beautiful coloring, with red, pink, gray and various colors of brown that streak through the grain. A luminous rosewood rim and finial accent the piece. The small knot on the rim has drawn forward to create a small indention in the lid and the body of the bowl has a couple of natural pin holes in the wood. Finished with a high gloss finish and buffed with bees wax to give a warm glow. Measures approximately 6.5” tall and 4“wide.
