Village Series with Shell
The “Village Series” is the name for Madera bowls where Jim uses pieces of wood leftover from previously-made bowls. Because he hates to waste any wood, he saves every little piece of wood and eventually figures out how to use them. With Village bowls, he takes pieces of wood that comes from all over the world and joins them together to create bowls, much like “it takes a village to raise child”.
This bowl has a seashell embedded in the bottom. It is still completely usable - the epoxy enclosing the shell is noted to be "food safe" and can even be used for infants' utensils. So you can still serve a beautiful salad in this bowl. (Remember to use wooden salad tongs - not metal that may scratch the wood.)
The base and 2 rings are made of cherry, plus 2 rings and the rim are made of different woods from all over the world,
Approximately 10" x 6".
