Serve up salads, fruit, nuts, popcorn etc. with style or just have an amazing handcrafted Spalted Beech bowl centrepiece adorn your table. This bowl has loads of spalt lines and zones making it an absolutely stunning piece. It would make a better display piece for some people rather than using it for food but each to their own.
The small bowl comes from just outside Beaufort, Killarney Co. Kerry and was blown down in 2017. I started cutting this tree in place in late 2017 and again in early 2018. Beech contains a lot of moisture and each log I cut had to be lifted by hand through a boggy field and over a ditch to get to my van.
Finish sanded to a highly smooth touch. For food convenience, it is coated with non permanent Liquid Paraffin (Mineral Oil) and burnished to a shine using very fine wool.
Dimensions 220mm x 80mm or 8 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches approx
Unboxed weight 390 grams
Please Note: You can save on the shipping costs by arranging to collect the bowl or have a designated person pick it up for you. Just pay for the item and select Pick Up option for free.
