A small bowl mended with sewn and hand hammered copper wire, handmade from local maple in our shop in Downeast Maine.

 

We salvaged this beautiful piece of norway maple in beautiful Hulls Cove, Maine. We shaped and hollowed out the bowl on our lathe and textured the bottom surface of the bowl with a flowing faceted texture using a hook knife. This bowl was turned while the wood was green, and we allowed the shaping to develop while drying to a naturally ovular form. The edge of the bowl is patched with a hand-sewn and hammered thread of copper wire. On the opposite side of the copper mend, this bowl features a flat axed surface from where we rough-shaped the blank.

 

The outside of the bowl has been decorated with traditional non-toxic flax oil paint, and the entire surface has been finished with organic solvent-free linseed oil and candelilla wax. This one-of-a-kind, non-replicable bowl is perfectly suitable for food use.

 

 

MEASUREMENTS:

 

About 4" across by 2 1/4" tall overall. This bowl is not perfectly round in shape due to the natural drying process of the wood.

 

 

You will receive the same exact bowl as in the photos.
