Home: Turned Black Acacia Wooden Platter
Turned by hand from Black Acacia wood, this unique platter/presentation bowl is created by the artist, John Cobb. John makes incredible pieces from wood found in local arborist's wood piles. The Black Acacia wood has a beautiful grain pattern, with blonde sections against rich brown areas at the center. A great California memento.
Salad or presentation bowl, beautiful to look at and hold. Perfect for salad or fruit. Will also hold jewelry, or keys. Top edge with a rim width of just 3/16 of an inch (very difficult to achieve on a lathe). Oil occasionally with food-grade mineral oil. Do not let the bowl soak or remain in water.
Oval shape measures 9 inches long X 7 3/4 inches wide, 2 1/4 inches deep. Signed by the artist.
