This bowl came from a tree that washed down a river in a large storm in the Fall of 2015. I towed it back to the beach near my house in a pouring rain.
I like thinking about the deer and bear that surely walked by the parent tree, the salmon that swam under its exposed roots.
The bowl doesn't show dramatic grain, but its tight growth rings show you that the parent tree grew in the shade of tall Sitka spruce.
Bowl measures: 7 1/4" x 1 5/8"
