Wild Black Cherry Bowl (with Pau Ferro Inlay)

  • This bowl is turned from wild black cherry wood, displaying the natural beauty of the wood grain. This bowl had a couple of cracks, which were masterfully filled in with an inlay of pau ferro wood. 

    Each bowl is turned by one of the nuns at St. Scholastica Priory. They are turned from green wood which will continue to move over the years. It is effected by the atmosphere -- it will expand and contract, etc., and rarely be a perfect round. Over the years the wood will darken. Each bowl is an original because the wood is different and reacts differently due to the grain in the wood, etc.

    It is finished with walnut oil, which is food-safe and non-toxic.
