While turning this piece of wood(don’t know the species), I found in it six fat juicy wood worms.
I like the traces that the worms leaves in the wood. It gives beautiful pattern.
In order to emphasize the pattern, burned flowers were added on the surface.
the vase is 5.5”dia. and 8 ” tall.

Nice bowl. Very unusual outcome. Flower additions look good.

I have had a couple of pieces lately that had these large worm holes. I’ll post a bowl later showing them.

Love it. To some it would have been scrap, but to you it had potential and the result is beautiful. Thanks for posting it.
