Spalted Burr Ash shallow bowl 9 cm X 26 cm W x 5 cm H
An unusual find, in that Ash Burrs are not that common.
Turned with a live edge of bark ,depicting the shape of the trunk , with the typical " eyes" and grain feathering of a burr.
Very close growth rings indicate slow growth ,probably due to harsh growing conditions.
Mottling as a result of Spalting , which is caused by fungal infection in damp , dead wood. Frozen in time once the wood dries out ,leaving all the attractive markings and colouring.
9 cm x 26 cm W x 5 cm H
