Handcrafted Magnolia Wooden Bowl
This bowl was hand turned on my lathe.
Magnolia is a great wood to turn for bowls but hard to find. The trees grow very very slowly here in Horseshoe Bend, AR and are seldom cut down except in rare circumstances or due to a storm. It has a very silky feel and rich tone. The darker brown area on the bottom and on the rim is not a stain. It was a darker area of wood that I decided to leave rather than remove. The other darker areas inside the bowl rim and on the outside are the beginnings of the spalting process which I think give it some added character. Magnolia embodies the properties of beauty, compassion, fidelity, happiness, joy, pleasure and love.
A medium Magnolia Bowl – hand tuned, one-of-a-kind bowl suitable for Offerings, display, dried herbs etc . . . Finish is satin hand rubbed and food safe.
Remember there is only one of this bowl making it a unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors.
