Poplar Hollow Form

Poplar Hollow Form | 6.5" x 11.8" | #518

With an intriguing layout and design, Mark Wood has chosen to show the core of the poplar tree itself. As close to abstraction as you could imagine, we see a balance between perfection in mechanical execution and craftsmanship. We often use words like spectacular and intriguing but here we see a…. one of a kind experience in art and the art of wood turning. A practical size and a pleasure to feel we are eager to meet its new owner… we love it.

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.
