This is a bowl made from the wood of an Elm Tree. Elm of this size is progressively harder to get as most of the big trees are gone. The burr is the unusual growth found on the side of some trees which can cause the knots and wavy grain pattern. It is finished in Danish Oil which is safe for use with food and can be used as a fruit bowl or as a stand alone piece. The dimensions are approximately 30cm wide x 81/2cm high or 12" x 3".
