Aspen burl bowl
Wildfires have swept the Methow Valley with distressing frequency in the last couple of decades, leaving destruction and loss in their wake. But each Spring shows the beginning of rebirth and renewal, and we are reminded there is still much beauty in this landscape, some of it beneath the scarred surface.
This turned, locally sourced aspen burl bowl reveals the beauty of the wood grain that lies below the singed exterior. Intricate grain patterns swirl around the surface--a bit like tongues of fire, while the charred rim reveals a passage through fire. 11-1/4" diameter x 3-3/4" high.
