This classically shaped chalice is made from a maple tree downed by a lightning strike in Daytona Beach, FL. The wood was heavily spalted, insect ridden and in certain places, beautiful.
This bowl was the third attempt to produce this shape from the maple logs. The first two had too many issues with spalting, knots and insect damage. The third time was the charm in this case.
The chalice measures 7 inches wide by 7 inches high and is finished with satin lacquer.
This chalice is a thank you gift to the property owner for the maple logs she donated.
