Natural Edge, Crotch-Winged Albizia Bowl

125.00

his bowl is made from a local Albizia tree (Albizia Julibrissin), also known as Persian Silk Tree.  The wood is taken from half of a crotch, a section of the tree where one branch diverges into two branches, giving the bowl three wings instead of the usual two wings found on natural edge bowls.  The wood between the two diverging branches has highly figured grain referred to as feather figure, and the style of this bowl shows off that bit of figure on the wing where the branches diverge.  

The style of this bowl makes it look as if a bowl was intersected with a thin plank of wood, but rest assured, this bowl is made from a single piece of wood.

The finish on this bowl is Boiled Linseed Oil.
