Robinia Burr , enclosed, winged bowl.

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.
