This bowl was ambitiously turned from a piece of sycamore that had significant heart-rot within it, which was probably the reason it was cut down as a limb of a big mature sycamore at Hookhouse Pottery near Tetbury. It was turned on a pole lathe (no electricity involved), and has resulted in an absolutely unique object. This hole in the side of the bowl precludes it’s use as a regular food-eating bowl, however, it could work well as a yarn bowl. It is just over 6.5″ across.

Nb. Only the bigger bowl in he photo is for sale!

It is finished with Treatex Hardwax Oil. A durable food-safe finish that doesn’t darken the wood from its original colour.
