Made from ancient hand-salvaged Rowan from Sitka, Alaska. Rowan is also known as mountain ash, and unlike the ash trees of the East Coast, Rowan is in the rose family. Celtic tradition says that every home should have at least one piece of Rowan to be complete.
The tree this piece was made from grew on a prominent hill overlooking the town of Sitka. Thin soils and storms made the tree grow slowly.
Zach shaped this piece with a delicate balance in mind, between growth and a solid foundation. This bowl is remarkably light in the hand. It's classicly curved shape is balanced with a lipped rim and raised foot.
This piece was completed after two years of drying the wood slowly outdoors. You'll notice that in final drying, the bowl warped further. Once fully dry, Zach carefully cut the base to sit flat.
This vessel is ready for display alone or with your special items. It was sanded to an ultra-fine grit, then finished with food-grade tung oil and citrus oil, and is 100% food-safe.
