This is a very rare piece of fiddle back yellow cedar. Light reflects at ninety degrees to the grain of wood. In straight grain, you get a single angle of reflected light, but when the grain folds back and forth, you get what is known as fiddle back or curly grain.
The subtle foot to this bowl gives lift to the gradual curve with a modest lip and in-sloping rim.
