I just love the grain pattern, bark in rim, and bark inclusion in the side of this bowl.
I left the bark edge in this bowl and you'll also see a bark inclusion that goes right through the side of the bowl that also lets a sliver of light through.
This bowl was part of a series of tooled surface interiors. So what does that mean? It means that I finished turned the interior and ran some medium grit sandpaper over quickly, then buffed with very fine sandpaper. This leaves a smooth yet textured surface that has been popular at artisan markets.
You really get a feel from the majority lighter wood and small amount of darker wood that this bowl came from the outer part of the tree, and quite close to a giant branch.
A special tree, for sure.
