Ash Calabash

Calabash bowl from an ash crotch. Walnut pewa joining some cracks. No foot, just a little dimple. Some great figure in this piece. About 7″ diameter, 3-1/2″ tall. Walnut oil finish.

Elm Hollow Form

Hollow from from an Elm crotch. About 10″ diameter and 6″ high.

Turned side-grain – that is, like a bowl, where the mouth of the form is pointing at the tree’s center (pith) and the foot pointing towards the bark.

Bark inclusion bridged with a single Wenge pewa.

Interior painted flat black to enhance the negative space of the interior. Exterior finished with walnut oil to highlight the figure and grain.
