I turned this hard maple bowl on the lathe in my shop. The center is undercut to create interesting shadows in the interior. I used a pyrography pen to embellish the rim with patters similar to Zentangle designs from coloring books. The pyrography pen looks like a fountain pen except the tip gets hot enough to etch a subtle color into the surfce of the wood. I then finished the piece with several coats of varnish to protect the design and the wood. The bowl can be used for anything dry, such as candy.


Dimensions 8 1/2 by 2 inches
