Handcrafted Paradise Fire Wooden Burl Bowl
This bowl was hand crafted and turned on my wood lathe.
The story behind the Paradise Fire Wooden Bowl is a sad tale from this tragedy. Yes this Burl “Root” came from the Paradise fire, 2019. When the recovery crew were clearing the ground, they dug up this charred root; the root was from a once large bush. During the Paradise fire, the ground was so hot that it baked this root and, without moisture, that Burl root became hard and rock-like. Thus, the root was extremely hard and difficult carve. I was constantly having to repeatedly sharpen my turning tools..
Paradise Fire Wooden Burl 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.
