Home: Turned Black Acacia Wooden Platter
Turned by hand from Chinese Elm wood, this unique 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, beginning with a blonde top edge gradating to a rich brown at the center. A great California memento.
Presentation bowl/platter, 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.
9 inches long, 7 3/4 inches wide, 2 1/4 inches deep. Signed by the artist.
