Cherry bowl with bark inclusion13.5 x 4.5This piece of cherry has beautiful grain. The character of the bowl is enhanced by a bark inclusion. The bowl is heavier than typical, to avoid a hole where the bark inclusion lies. This bowl has warped considerably since turning, and could not be corrected without making the lip around the rim uneven; I guess we'll have to call it a 'feature' of the natural material.given as gift
Chestnut Natural-edge bowl 13 x 7This bowl provoked a lot of admiration; the rather plain grain is counteracted by the natural edge, pleasing tumblehome shape, and glossy finish. It also has a small blemish which adds interest, and is filled with malachite on the inside.sold$100

Honey Locust hollow form with azurite3 x 5.5Well, this was originally intended to be a winged box, but I shattered the wing (several times - it kept getting smaller), and so resorted to damage control.

Plum bowl with bamboo accents6.5 x 2Plum is a pretty wood with rich colors, but is very prone to warping, which is what happened to this bowl. I should have chucked it in the woodstove, but didn't have one, so it hung around until I got the idea of using bamboo to salvage it. I fit a bamboo ring to the base so it would sit flat, and added the bamboo twig to distract the eye from the warping. It kindof works!donated

Maple bowl with gold inlay17 x 7Well, not really gold. Several small defects and cracks were filled with brass for a striking contrast with the beautiful colors of the spalted wood; and it does seem to catch the light like gold. This is a very large bowl which would be suitable for entertaining. It is from the same tree as another bowl, from which I removed 20 embedded nails while turning. Happily, this piece had only two. given as gift
Plum Natural-edge bowl 6 x 2.5This bowl has nice contrast between the dark bark, the creamy sapwood and the tans, browns, and reds of the heartwood.

Plum bowl 6 x 2Another piece of plum with beautiful colors. This one actually did self-destruct as it dried.
