#17 – what makes this bowl different from all other bowls? This particular specimen of manzanita is a dished out live edge form set to sit on a slant. It also has the addition of two ebony butterflies in the lower rim section. Why? IDK it looks cool! Every single bowl we do with this is unique, this one has a particularly interesting array of worm holes as well!
As usual – the OCD techniques in the butterflies are Mike Pietras’s doing … he also cut the angle on the base. Turning and finishing was my doing. He wandered by and said I’m going to add butterflies to this one … I said OK. Collaborations tend to produce the most unique stuff!
Another bowl that’s on its way to an event next week in NYC …
