Made from old-growth, hand-salvaged Sitka alder from an island surrounded by the Tongass National Forest, near Sitka, Alaska.
Zach let the wood for this bowl sit under cover for over a year before shaping and final drying. Zach waited until the spalting process had altered the normal color, giving these subtle yet amazing colors.
You'll notice slight warping from final drying at the rim In your hand you'll feel a delightful slight reduction in thickness near the branch knot, which teaches that knots generally hold more moisture than the surrounding wood. Of course Zach waited until the bowl was fully dry in order to leave a flat base.
This bowl is perfect for holding small, special items such as: jewelry or dry treasured collections from nature. For the serious foodie, it would also be the perfect bowl for holding a few garlic cloves.
