A unique decorative centerpiece or serving bowl, carved by hand from local poplar in our shop in Downeast Maine.
This multi-purpose bowl would be great for serving guests as part of your bust-out-the-nice-stuff entertaining wares, as a centerpiece for your dining room table, or as an everyday statement fruit bowl on your countertop.
We salvaged this beautiful piece of warm light brown poplar wood from a large wind-felled tree on our property in Ellsworth, Maine. We hollowed out this bowl using only hand tools, allowing the shaping to be completely free-form and unique by using no compasses or rulers. The resulting profile and texture on the underside of the bowl evokes the delicate shaping of a chanterelle mushroom. The inside of the bowl is covered with a stubtle flowing handcarved faceted texture, the top of the bowl has been gently carved with a smooth surface, and the entire outside is deeply patterned from gouges.
This bowl is completely one-of-a-kind unique and non-replicable.
The surface of the bowl has been finished with organic solvent-free linseed oil and candelilla wax, making the wood smooth and perfect for food contact.
This bowl shouldn't be used with very liquid-y foods, like vinegary salad dressing or soup.
About 12 1/2" long by 5 1/2" wide by 2 1/2" tall overall.
You will receive the same exact bowl as in the photos. Hand wash only and re-oil with the included tin of our wood balm as needed.
