Inspired by pottery of ancient civilizations and reminiscent of an archeological find, this natural edged bowl is made from a silver birch root-ball (Betula Pendula). The deep rich colours of the root make this piece very different from birch’s usual paler colour. Turning a form such as this requires the lathe to run at high speeds, and with a wall thickness of 5mm great care needs to be taken in it’s making.
