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!

Nice piece!

Pretty nice grain pattern, all the way around the center of the tree. Cool
