This is my statement on our throw away society. I wanted this bowl to look like it had been cast away, lost, maybe buried, and then found. I hope the finder, saw past the deterioration, and saw it’s original beauty ,hidden now from view & that they take it home , give it new life, and are happy with their find.
Maple, about 7 1/2 inches

Long in the tooth and slightly chipped, does that mean me too?

Nicely executed!

Very cool thought and an interesting piece.
After reading the title and seeing it my first thought was a ”she loves me / she loves me not” daisy.
You always do beautiful thought provoking work …. Thanks.

This is just lovely, Michelle! I can only imagine how it looks in person. I am always in awe of your ability to coax the wood to do things that are so out of the ordinary, with such beautiful results! Wonderful piece! :)
