Dark Blue Manitoba Maple Bowl


This 11" salad bowl was turned from soft maple (Acer negunda) that features some figure and depth. The outside and rim of the bowl have been painted with dark blue milk paint that really makes the interior pop. Milk paints provide a durable, food safe, wonderfully tactile surface that still lets the grain of the wood telegraph through the finished piece. The form itself is simple but elegant, and features a band of texture framed between to inset beads. The top of the rim is inward sloping and the inside is undercut to provide another shadow line and visual depth the piece. A ring foot at the base gives the form a little visual lift when it is sitting on a table or counter, while texturing and several concentric rings 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 tung oil and then buffed to a pleasing satin sheen, this bowl is ready to go to work in your kitchen or dining room.
