Pin Knot Live Edged Mountain Ash

Mountain Ash
Handmade, one-of-a-kind
excellent display piece or jewelry bowl
finished w/ food-grade Danish oil, varnish, and bees wax
made by Zach LaPerriere
Sitka, Alaska 2016
bowl measures 7 3/4" X 1 1/4"

This bowl had been set aside for a gallery and despite being from 2016, this is the first time it's for sale on my website.

It's a beautiful piece with a small through-knot in the edge of the base of the bowl.  I also left a bit of live-edge on one side from right under the bark layer.  The grain shimmers in good light.

This will make a handsome jewelry bowl or bowl for small items.

Story: This tree died in front of a historic downtown Sitka home and was given to me by the granddaughter of the man who planted the tree.

At a recent market in Juneau a woman bought a bowl from this same tree.  We got to talking and after I learned she grew up in Sitka 60 years ago, I asked her name and soon realized that the man who planted the tree was her uncle.
