The Wonder of Wood

Turning Timber into Treasure

Large coloured bowl

This very imposing bowl is turned from Mahogany.

The center is aggressively sanded to expose the variance between the soft and hard wood rings of the timber.

This gives an uneven surface which is ebonised and finger painted with a green and gold iridescent artists colour.

Finaly it is sprayed with an acrylic laquer and waxed.

The affect of this finish is to give the piece the appearance of a beaten and burnished bronze shield.

The outside of this bowl is oiled and waxed.

18 1/2" Diameter.
