Mesquite Bowl with Turquoise Inlay
This mesquite bowl was hand-turned from locally and responsibly sourced mesquite wood. I turned this bowl while the wood was still wet, and several cracks appeared during the drying process (not uncommon). I used these cracks as an opportunity to add color in the form of turquoise powder.
Mesquite is renowned for its density and stability, and it holds up great to repeated use as a food serving bowl.

Dimensions: 8" round x 3" 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 it in the dishwasher, microwave, or freezer.
