Description

This a piece of oak burr from a Lancaster tree, that demonstrates that every now and then the beauty in a bowl is in what you leave behind. It’s always easy to turn to a preconceived shape or idea but sometimes it pays to step back and think again. There is beauty in the way the shallow bowl details the grain and some spalting, yet this leaves the burr pretty well intact.

This was turned whilst the wood was very fresh and wet (green) and I would expect it to warp and twist as it dries.
