Handmade Spalted Birch Bowl
Unique Spalted Birchwood Bowl.
A real find. From a tree I felled in the coppice in the winter of 2014/15, it has developed this beautiful spalting pattern caused by fungus. It is much prized by woodworkers for the gorgeous patterns it creates in the wood. It is entirely safe to use for food.
A lovely piece to have at home for serving guacamole, tapenade or your favourite dip.
This was turned on my pole lathe, and as layers are removed the beautiful patterns emerge.
The bowl is 6" (15cm) wide and 2" (5cm) deep.
It is finished with Walnut oil and beeswax and will develop its own patina over the years
Wash in warm water and dry, not dishwasher safe
