MICK is a live edge wood bowl hand turned from apple burl wood sustainably sourced here in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
This particular piece of apple wood is from the burl of the tree. Burls are knotty growths on trees where the wood has grown in a deformed manner. The deformation of the wood as the tree grew created a unique and visually striking grain when viewed from any vantage point.
Within the burl I found voids and sections of decay. Hence, there are large holes and decayed portions of the wood, and the thicknesses of the walls changes in relation to the natural disfigurement of the wood. I left the holes and decayed portions intact which adds to the uniqueness of this piece.
This live edge wood bowl measures approximately 6-1/4″ at its widest point, 2-3/8″ tall, and 1-3/4″ deep. I finished it with high friction polish to bring out the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood.
Care instructions are included with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
