~~SOLD--Mountain Ash Shallow Bowl
excellent for a fruit or salad bowl
finished w/ food-grade walnut oil
made by Zach LaPerriere
Sitka, Alaska 2016
bowl measures 7 1/2" X 1 3/8"
This bowl came from higher up in the tree where there is more sapwood relative to heartwood, so you'll just see a little of the dark wood.
I like the growth rings in mountain ash...there's always something unique to see, as is the case in the interior of this bowl.
These shallow bowls (bordering on deep plates) are great for cookies, nuts, garlic, that sort of thing.
If I stretch my memory, the interior of this section of the tree had a little rot from a cut branch, so I salvaged the sound outer wood—but it's also possible that I'm thinking of another bowl.
