Bowls can be both ornamental and useful. Bowl design and wood grain form a symbiotic duo to create masterpieces. Below are some of the bowls we have made. To see ones for sale see the store links on the left.
Spalted Maple BowlSpalted Maple - Pillow bowl
6" wide by 2" high

The pillow bowl design features an undercut lip and short stalky sides and an overall shape that looks like a small throw pillow.

The black lines are naturally occurring from the  spalting process. The lines are created  by a fungus that meander through the wood. Once turned and finished the spalting is not harmful.
