hand turned wood

Norfolk Island Pine Hollow Form

Norfolk Island Pine Hollow Form | 8.5″ x 7″ with 1″ Opening | #470

This piece is comprised of four separately turned pieces plus the mineral aragonite attached to the top. Some believe all minerals have special powers. It is believed that aragonite increases energy, boosts self-confidence and feeling of self-worth as you learn to place trust in yourself. Additionally, Aragonite relieves stress, emotional fatigue and anger, bringing patience when it is needed most.
The base and collar are made from Ebony and the cap is made from a piece of mystery wood from my bin of surplus cutoffs.

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.
