This Red Cedar bowl is almost the last of a tree downed by the hurricanes of 2004. The bowl measures 6 inches high, including the finial, by 5 inches wide. It is finished with a clear satin lacquer. By a slow drying process I was able to preserve the pith of the tree. (the original center around which the tree grew)

That is a great piece of ART! The color is fantastic. Something beautiful out of some very trying times. Glad to see it didn’t go in the fire pile!

Smackerel

Nice piece!
