Handcrafted Wood Bowls

Flame Maple Bowl (Master Grade) 9"


This bowl was a joy to create.  Thick pieces of Master Grade (MA) Flame Maple are fun to work with.  I started with a small foot so that a dramatic sweeping view of the exterior could be obtained enabling your eyes follow the grain up the outer wall.  I think of the peaks at Yosemite whenever I look at this bowl.  What would those peaks look like in the flame pattern of this bowl?  The steep interior of this Flame Maple bowl enables your senses to take in the magical descent as your vision moves across the surface.
