Turned from Sycamore felled in the Tyne Valley, Northumberland.
It was turned on my Bowl Lathe, the traditional way of making cups and bowls for thousands of years. I needed to keep an eye on that handle as it spun as it wanted to whack my knuckles every time it passed.
The decoration on the handle is done with food safe 'Milk Paint'
The bowl is 3" (8cm) across and 1.5" (4cm) deep and the whole piece is 6" (15cm) long including the handle.
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
