This bowl sold the minute I got a finish on it. The Cypress tree had died standing and remained that way for a year. Talk about cracking! If you read my profile you’ll understand that I don’t adhere to conventional drying times but I must observe and seal cracks over a period of several weeks.

This went at a silent auction to benefit Japanese earthquake victims and people had a mini bidding war going on. This after I had considered setting the bowl aside because of the cracks!

Those are some bad cracks, but it’s a beautiful shape and use of the wood. Glad it went so quickly at your auction!
