This is the second Box Elder Bowl carved from the same crotch section of wood. This bowl’s shape was pretty much defined by the wood in the sense that large cracks formed in a “V” like shape. I played off this shape to create the red wine goblet like shape of this bowl. A fairly large crack formed near the opening of the bowl during the turning and I decided to fill it with gold dust and CA glue to slightly accent it as part of the natural character rather than turn the bowl down to avoid it.
Wood: Box Elder from North Carolina
Finish: Tri, white diamond, wax
