bowl measures 7 5/8" X 2 5/8"
I like to tell the story of a tree when I shape it into a bowl. It's an uncovering of sorts.
The brother and sister who sold us our property grew up in the house near where this Alder grew in downtown Sitka. It was an honor to recently sell a bowl to the sister who is giving a gift of that bowl to her brother.
At any rate, this bowl shows a few knots holes that go right through the bowl. You know it came from a real tree.
Ideal as as medium-ish fruit bowl (these apples are on the smaller side, for reference) or whatever else you dream up.
I love shaping these one-of-a-kind bowls.
