Elm Hollow Form

Elm Hollow Form | 14″ wide x 7″ High | #477

This wood came from a tree on Roscoe Blvd in Ponte Vedra Beach that blew down during hurricane Irma in 2017. The top of the bowl is the outside edge of the tree and the bottom of the bowl is the tree heart. The light color wood is referred to as sapwood and the darker wood is called heartwood.

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.
