12.75" Ambrosia Maple Salad Bowl


This 13" salad bowl was turned from a nice piece of soft maple (Acer saccharinum) that features a little bit of contrasting dark heart wood and several "Ambrosia" stripes which are the remnants of Ambrosia beetles boring into the living tree. This wood in this bowl also has some curly figure through out, that provides additional interest and an almost three dimensional shimmer that sometimes appears in maple wood. The form itself is simple but pleasant. The outside profile is a simple curve that features a three raised beads close to he at the rim. The top of the rim is inward sloping and the inside is undercut to provide another shadow line and visual depth the piece. A subtle foot at the base gives the form a little visual lift when it is sitting on a table or counter. The bottom features several concentric textured rings that demonstrate that the bottom was turned with as much care and attention as the rest of the plate. Finished with a food safe linseed oil and bees wax finish and then buffed to a pleasing satin sheen, this bowl is ready to go to work in your kitchen or dining room.
