This piece is heavy, bulky even … but that was what it wanted. The outside is bright, amazingly contrasting in color, and has some very unique voids and inclusions. The center is bored out with a single punched hole, going any wider would have cut through a deep impression on one side negating the whole piece. I figured again this would be a nice vase, a block of foam down in the hole and some fake flowers or we could insert a cup and put in real flowers.
And this concludes 2013 – #24 is the last Manzanita Burl Bowl of the year! Next (this) year we will reset the counter and we will be running various series of bowls.
