In a private collection
In terms of overall size, this is probably the largest bowl I’ve made. It is 27 inches long, 14 1/4 inches wide, and 5 1/4 inches high. The decorative carving around the rim is similar to the large triangular recesses I’ve carved on a couple bowls before, but the sides of these recesses are curved, creating a series of Gothic arches of sorts, or maybe petals. The upper surface of the bowl is arched, with the rim flowing downward from the handles. On the exterior, a raised ridge line carries the line of the handles along the bowl. I reflected the texture of the exterior surface on the interior as well. What a privilege I have to work with this beautiful wood.
