10" Sage Painted Bead Rim Calabash


This 10" salad bowl was turned from soft maple (Acer saccharinum) that features heartwood and some sublte curly figure. The outside of the bowl has been painted with sage milk paint. Milk paints provide a durable, food safe, wonderfully tactile surface that still lets the grain of the wood telegraph through the finished piece. The itself is simple but elegant. The outside profile is a simple, slightly enclosed form that just begs to be picked up. An unpainted bead at the rim of the bowl delineates the interior. A very subtle foot gives the form a little visual lift when it is sitting on a table or counter, while texturing and several concentric rings inside the unpainted bottom serve as proof that the bottom of the bowl was turned with as much are and attention to detail as the rest of piece. Finished with several coats of food-safe linseed oil and beeswax and then buffed to a pleasing satin sheen, this bowl is ready to go to work in your kitchen or dining room.
