The wood for this bowl was obtained from a local arborists who were removing the tree. They indicated that the tree was a Kartha Plum but no further information can be found on it. As the timber was drying a number of cracks formed in it. The larger of these were opened up and filled with turquoise resin adding some highlights to the bowl. The bowl is 22cm across and 12cm high. It has been finished in a non-toxic friction polish giving it a gloss shine. This is a great sized bowl for fruit, keys or snacks.
Hot liquids should not be put in the bowl as this will damage the finish. To clean the bowl use a damp cloth and wipe it over. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used as this will remove and damage the finish.
