BIG Apple Burl Fruit Bowl
16 1/4 in. x 16 1/4 in. x 4 1/4 in.
This bowl is from what was the largest and probably the oldest apple tree in the state of Massachusetts. Most of it came down in a storm and I was invited
to be the first one to take whatever I wanted from what had fallen. I KNOW that apple is hard to find in large pieces and
extremely difficult to keep from cracking in any size, but I couldn’t help myself. The largest apple burls I had/have
ever seen were laying there asking to go home with me. So, this apple burl bowl is not fit for salad or anything wet. It
is, in fact, in light of its material and size a piece of art… It needs not have a purpose to be valued.
with kukui nut oil to 800 and finished with micro-crystalline "Renaissance" wax.
