Red – Red Cedar Hollow Form

Red – Red Cedar Hollow Form | 8" x 11" x 11" | #539

Red is as red does from Mark Wood. This big red bowl in cedar is testimony to the insight of Mark Wood to see, in a discarded stump, the beauty within. Its been said that Michael Angelo could look at a block of marble and see the finished figure within. The instinct to create is strong in this artist, who is very popular with our collectors as well as a pleasure to know and to represent. Seeing is one thing, touching is quite another… one of the best!

 

Artist's Insights – "This cedar tree came from Tampa, FL and the log was full of cracks and voids. It is all these irregularities that create such unique patterns and shapes in the form." – 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.

Mark Wood
