Today’s bowl is a Spalted Maple wooden bowl. This is wood bowl #2 out of the 100 bowls challenge. This spalted maple wood bowl is just stunning. This bowl features a wide flat rim that slopes in toward the center of the bowl. The rim has been undercut which gives you a nice area to grip the bowl. The wood bowl is 2 3/4 inches tall. All of the coloring that you see on the bowl is natural and has occurred during the spalting process.
Spalting is usually found in wood that has been cut down for a year or more and has started the process of returning itself to the earth. You will usually have areas with black and dark brown lines around them. These areas remind me of boundary lines found on maps. Like what you would see between towns, counties, states and countries.
