The wood this bowl is made of just escaped the fire pile. It was an oblong piece with the pith still intact and one could only see a hint of crotch because the piece was still buck sawn. I am glad I took a closer look before casting it into the flames. 13” Diameter.

-- Cheers!

good save. I like the fact you turned it simply, with the large rim to highlight the figure.

You are really giving me a something to look forward to: in skill and craftsmanship. It is a very nice piece!
