This is a walnut bowl with a sculpted edge. It is 16 inches in diameter and about 8 inches deep. The surface is dyed and glazed. It is returned where I don’t want the surface enhancement.

It looks metallic on the outer area. Very interesting technique.

Fantastic bowl. The outside almost looks like Lacewood.

Wow! The outside textured area REALLY stages the walnut interior. What is the finish on the walnut? The proportions are just right.

The outside is textured then dyed. The dye being honey amber reacts with the tanic acid in the walnut and turns a cool green. Then it is glazed with white unsanded grout and rubbed until what I want left is held in the texture.
