Bark Pocket Maple natural edge bowl with blue out side and crushed stone inlay
Bark Pocket Maple is a maple tree with burl like figure throughout much of the tree trunk. It has many bark inclusions which distort the grain pattern and create voids where the bark has deteriorated. This bowl is about 9" x 12" x3.5 ". It is finished with polyurethane and can hold dry goods, but is not meant for wet materials. It is mostly an art piece. The voids in this bowl were filled with crushed stone.
