Sage Painted Ambrosia Maple Bowl


This 10.5" salad bowl was turned from soft maple (Acer saccharinum) that features heartwood and a couple of ambrosia stripes. 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 curve that features a raised cove at the rim, which creates a distinct shadow line and provides the perfect place for your thumb when you pick the bowl up. 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.
