These two bowls came from opposite sides of one chestnut log. Like siblings, they are related but not identical - each has it's own personality. One has drying cracks filled with a tinted resin, evoking the Japanese ceramic practice. The other sibling is slightly curvier, with an added splash of teal underneath.
Chestnut is a beautiful wood, with rich color and grain. In 12 years of carving, I've only found two chestnut logs suitable for bowls.
My signature bowls are offered on a sliding scale pricing model. See here for details. Prices are for the pair of bowls.
