driftwood spruce root bowls

these bowls were made from two halves of the same driftwood root ball. both bowls have rocks imbedded in them. The root grew right around the gravel sized rocks and created the crazy scars that were left behind. Also there is gray coloring that was leached from the rocks. These were carved with a chainsaw. they are aproximately 19” long and 13” wide.
