I was inspired by a clip from this video by Sam Angelo and made a nativity set for the family. I happened to have a bowl that I’d gone too thin on the bottom, so I could cut it to made the manger.
I made a large (about 16″ diameter) walnut bowl as a wedding gift for my son.
Walnut bowl, about 11″ diameter, with Lichtenberg fractal patterns. Also features a natural bark inclusion along the rim (a defect in the original tree).
A shallow Walnut bowl with Lichtenberg patterns burned around the open flared rim. The rim also features a natural bark inclusion from the original tree. The bowl is about 11″ diameter.
