Nailed | Poplar Large Hollow Form with Cap, 3 Nails | 13" x 11"

"Because all of my pieces are made from 'recycled' wood, this is wood that typically comes from a tree that was recomved by a homeowner. Occasionally, I find nails or other materials in the tree. If you nail something to a tree and fail to remove it, the tree will eventually grow over the embedded nail and remain in the tree, unknown to all. This was the case with this piece. The three nails in the top of this piece were all discovered during the making of this piece, thus I wanted to save them and incorporate them in the final form." – Mark Wood, November 2023

"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."
