This is a natural edge bowl with the bark still intact. It is turned from cherry and measures approximately 10.25 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall. It is finished with flat acrylic.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Trifern is expanding his artistic talents AGAIN!!! Fantastic. Love the shape and the live edge sets it off.

You just keep raising the bar. Keep up the inspirational work.

It has a primitive yet elegant flair to it. The bark is a fragile yet rustic natural embelishment. Did you use CA glue to keep that stable in order to lathe it? Very nice simple and interesting piece.

yes, I agree with Karson, a great creation.
Had you to fix the bark in some way or it wasn’t necessary? (I ask this only because recently I had to use some paraloid for an old worm-eaten piece of furniture)

Joe, this is a very interesting turning. It is good to see you doing something different to “stretch” your talents.

beautiful, great job, I like the thin jaggedness of the bark, really wild and raw.

Very nice turning. Keeping the bark intact is not the easiest thing in the world to do. I especially like the “hanging bark” piece that is sticking out in air, very nice touch.

-- Those that say it can't be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

Very cool! And I just happen to have the perfect place to display it.
Have you considered turning goblets?! I’d LOVE to see what you could do with a couple of those!
