Butterfly Wings – Camphor Bowl

Butterfly Wings – Natural Edge Camphor Bowl | 5" x 17" x 19.5" | #538

A spectacular bowl in camphor where Mark Wood reveals the random ability of nature and man to create a work of art. The butterfly wings within are a permanent surprise. Note the turquoise streak with its added flare. Here is a utilitarian work of art to love… its bonus is its fragrance and bouquet of the camphor wood itself. So many places for it to become… perfect!


Artist's Insights – "This bowl was turned from the crotch section of the tree, where the trunk splits into two large branches. This created a unique shape in the grain of the bowl that reminds me of butterfly wings." – Mark Wood

All my bowls and vessels are made from recycled wood. This is wood from a tree that was cut down by a homeowner for safety reasons, by a builder in order to facilitate construction of a new home or was blown down by Mother Nature. This wood would have ended up in the city landfill or someone’s fireplace. Much of my wood I find on the side of the road waiting for the trash pickup.

None of my bowls are perfect because they were made from imperfect wood by imperfect hands however, I make up for their imperfection by adding a little magic to each one. Beyond their beautiful appearance, each of my bowls/vessels has the added benefit of being able to hold your worries and fears. So by placing your worries and fears in your bowl, you are better able to focus on the blessings in life.

I hope you enjoy your bowl as much as I did in making it for you.
