Spalted Beech Bowl

(unique piece, only one made)

sealed with a mix of natural oils and waxes

22.5 cm diameter x 5.5 cm tall x 4 cm deep


I salvaged this piece of wood from the branch section of a beech tree on a nearby neighbor's property here in Belgium.  The tree had fallen and had been lying on the ground for about four years, which led to some beautiful spalting.  I waited about a year before working with the wood to let it dry out.  Once relatively dry I roughly turned the bowl and waited another several months before the final turning.  I can't help but think about the amount of time it took for this piece to arrive into its current state.  From seed to bowl!
