This black walnut salad bowl features a simple profile that features a reverse curve at the base and an elegant raised cove around the rim. The top surface of the rim slopes invitingly towards the interior of the bowl, while a slight under cut provides a subtle visual cue and a comfortable handle for your thumbs when you pick the bowl up. The relatively simple, unadorned shape of this bowl really make the rich browns and oranges of the walnut the centre of attention. The bottom has been turned with a raised exterior ring to ensure that bowl always rests without rocking while a recessed interior has been decorated with several concentric rings that serve as proof that the bottom was turned with as much detail and care as the upper surfaces. Finished with a food safe, linseed oil based finish and buffed to a satin sheen, this bowl is ready to go to work in your kitchen or hold decorative items on your mantel.
