Laurel Oak Bowl

Laurel Oak Bowl | 18" wide x 5" High | #483

Mark Wood embraces the naturally beautiful and intriguing spalting process (caused by fungus permeating & leaving intriguing traces) Here is a bowl that shines in revealing the wood turner’s passion and the magnificence of nature itself. Laurel Oak thrives in our Northern Florida swamps. We love the way this true artist embraces each piece's unique qualities and you will too! A pure conversational and utilitarian creation… A must have.

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.
