This large walnut wood bowl was locally crafted and embellished. The artist wanted to let the wood speak for itself while also adding his own touch. While shaping the bowl he discovered a large hole in the wood and almost discarded the whole piece. Instead, he realized he could accentuate the “flaws” of the piece and turn them into something magical. The artist perfectly captured the gradient in the wood from light to dark and added two small gold bars inside the hole in the wood to capture the beauty of the imperfection.
