Black Walnut Bowl

Height: 3"

Width: 11.5"

I made two bowls from this piece of Black Walnut that was cast aside, and this is the first one. The bowl came from a ‘crotch’, that Y-shape where two branches of a tree bifurcate and go their own ways. This is why you get the crazy grain pattern: two eyes staring back at you. Remnants of the bark still cling to three of the edges. I see a face, maybe a heart in this one.
