[pink bowl]

Pink "Mystery Wood" Bowl, 1999

Approximately 8 inches diameter. This bowl was made from a log I found on the street after a neighbor cut down a yard tree.  I never did find out with certainty what species it is (someone suggested that it could be Dogwood).  The wood was hard, bright pink and it worked fairly easily.  I turned a thin-walled bowl while the wood was still very wet, to try to maximize the distortion during drying.  The end result is a saddle-shaped bowl with an oval mouth that has lots of cool ripples in the surface.
