Large maple dish with a beautiful bark live edge. It measures 8 inches across, 6 inches wide, and 2.5 inches tall. I like the simplistic look of this piece with the robust bark staring at you from the side.
The flat bottom allowed more of the live edge to remain. Leaving the pith in the side was a great idea as the accompanying inclusions make this wood turned bowl extra intriguing to look at.
Made from a fallen maple tree in New Hampshire, it was turned wet and then dried fast using the microwave method learned from @Shaw_Studio on Instagram.
Because it looked so nice, I didn’t apply a finish. However, a little cutting board oil may be in order to seal it up.
