Made from a slow-growing, hand-salvaged Red Elderberry Burl from the Tongass National Forest in Sitka, Alaska.
It is incredibly rare to find a Red Elderberry burl large enough to for me to use.
This vessel tells the story of a twisting unconventional bush that grows in exact correspondence to its surroundings. The broad rim of this bowl shows the growth of individual buds winding outward until reaching the natural edge of the burl.
