~~SOLD--Light and Dark Half-Charred Bowl

Western Hemlock
Handmade, one-of-a-kind
excellent for a fruit or small item bowl

made by Zach LaPerriere
Sitka, Alaska 2017
bowl measures 9 1/4 X 3 1/4"

As a long time watcher of wood in the campfire and woodstove, I love seeing charred wood—but I also love the intimacy of a finely finished piece of wood.

Would it work to incorporate both into the same bowl?  I'm pleased with the results.  If you look closely you'll see that the darker part of each growth ring is what becomes the lightest part of the bowl in the charred interior.  Isn't that cool?!

The small circle of grain you see in the rim of the bowl is a result of a branch that grew just outboard of the circle.

This bowl will make a stunning fruit bowl or end table piece for picking up and viewing in your hands.
