Robinia Burr , enclosed, winged bowl.
Including Royal Mail Parcel Post (UK Delivery Only) Signed for 48 hr delivery
An attractive, enclosed bowl , of Robinia, also called False Acacia or Black Locust .
A species prone to developing "burrs" which, when worked , exhibit the spectacular colours and markings highlighted in this unusual piece.
The " wings" and natural edge illustrate the shape of the trunk as the piece was turned end grain, horizontally across the log.
Turning of this type is challenging, in as much that , when spinning on the lathe the uneven egdges are invisible, but does produce a stunning end product, provided one's fingers are still intact!!
Overall 40 cm x 15 cm.
