This burl wanted to be polished, something about it took on the shape of a full rounded vessel maintaining the live surface in the recesses and around the rim. The outside kept its bright yellow sapwood, while the glowing red interior is illuminating. The shape of the original root ball led into this final form.
I like this one, debating about keeping it but it’s been created to head to a pending event in NYC. I’ll be sad to see it go, but at the same time I think it will be a good earner. I am going to template the shape before this heads out, at least I can replicate the form (or attempt too) at some point if the right one comes along again.
