Transplant – Norfolk Island Pine – Hollow Form

Transplant – Norfolk Island Pine – Hollow Form | 8.3" x 13" x 13" | #534

A Mark Wood creation with lots of character, the rare Norfolk Island Pine has distinctive and charming knots that are accentuated by its intriguing color and unique striations that are the result of spalting. This distinctive and classically shaped bowl is a showstopper! 

Artist's Insights – "This wood was given to me by a good friend who had a liver transplant and was no longer able to turn the wood himself. This is a very special piece and the Norfolk Island Pine this form came from was unusually large." – Mark Wood

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.
