Ember No. 2
Typically when I'm using the method of Yakisugi, I keep a close eye on my pieces so as they don't burn or change shape too much. However, this time I let the flames run their course.
Made using salvaged birch from Blue River, BC.
To me, Ember No. 2 and it's smaller sibling Ash No. 2, that are both turned from the same tree, are the definition of Wabisabi: perfectly imperfect, abstract shapes with organic edges and two different, individual yet parallel stories of origin.
Since it is finished with a food safe oil it could be used for fruit, however due to the texture and nature of this bowl, I would suggest using it for decor or display only.
Dimensions: 11 inches x 4.25 inches
This bowl is not watertight and is intended for decorative use. Measurements are approximate and it's finished with an all-natural, non-toxic and plant-based oil.
