This is a very unique bowl in that it is from a tree that was grafted 50 years ago. It is half male pistachio and half female pistachio. I bought the blank at Dead Tree Salvage in Casa Grande, Az and it had a ton of cracks in it.
It was cut with the graft seam a bit off center and I left it like that so as to not sacrifice another 1” on the diameter. It is 8” dia. x 3” high.
The cracks are filled with real turquoise and black epoxy and finished with Danish Oil . I’m debating on lacquering it in the future.
