Handmade Mesquite Calabash Style "Galaxy" Bowl

$155.00

This bowl was made from local and responsibly sourced mesquite wood. I created the look of a starry night by using a woodburning tool to stipple the light band of sapwood. Each one of the several thousand "stars" was done by hand; a labor-intensive process that took several hours, but I'm really happy with the look of this bowl.

I'm calling this a calabash style bowl because the enclosed form resembles the shape of a gourd.

Dimensions: 7.5" round x 5" deep

Maintenance and care: This bowl was finished with food-safe walnut oil and beeswax. Clean with soap and water, and dry after each use. When the wood begins to look dry, simply apply mineral oil, walnut oil, or any food-grade oil of your choice. If the bowl begins to feel rough, a quick sanding with 400 grit sandpaper will smooth it out. This bowl was handmade and likes to be hand-washed. Please do NOT put in the dishwasher, microwave, or freezer.
