It may sound corny, but this winged bowl made from Callery Pear, with sapwood on one side and heartwood on the other, reminds me of everything about marriage: Two parts (the sapwood and the heartwood) are united; The two sides will be more alike over time (as the sapwood darkens); the two parts are are not 50/50 (yeah, thats a loaded one); It has its ups and downs (the wavy wings.); it has integrity in spite of a few fractures (cracks in the bowl section.). Perhaps it would make a nice wedding gift.
