bowl measures 8" X 2"
Here's a basic beautiful mountain ash bowl. The contrast between light and dark wood gives this a simple elegance.
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.
This would be a perfect small fruit bowl or hold a lot of jewelry.
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.
