Box Elder Burl Handcrafted Bowl

Box Elder Burl Bowl
A lovely light bowl made from Box Elder Burl. The pink colour is typical of Box Elder (a member of the Maple family, also known as Manitoba Maple). The roughed out dry blank was given to me as a home work assignment after spending the day of creating with a friend. I gave careful attention to the curve on the outside and matched it exactly on the inside making the sides very thin to achieve the translucent effect you see. The foot lifts the bowl slightly.

Oil brings out the translucent nature of the thin wood and wipe on poly is applied in four coats for the glossy shine.
