MYRINA is a wood serving bowl handmade from beautiful Bourbon County walnut wood sustainably sourced here in Kentucky.
I reinforced a few natural cracks visible in the wood which adds to the unique character of this piece. Remnants of the wood’s inner bark, resembling “Jupiter’s Eye,” are visible on the exterior edge of the dish.
This wood serving bowl measures 11-5/8″ in diameter and 1-5/8″ tall with a maximum interior depth of approximately 1″. I polished the top of the dish with food safe Terra Nova NaturOil after which I applied a coating of beeswax for added protection. The underside of the plate was finished with high friction polish.
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.
