OPHELIA is a contemporary decorative bowl that I hand turned from flaming box elder wood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. This wood lends itself perfectly to one of my more modern flying saucer forms.
This contemporary decorative bowl measures approximately 12-1/4″ wide by 1-3/8″ tall, and 1″ deep. I polished the bowl with food safe Odie’s Oil to provide a durable finish and rich luster. An inclusion is visible in the wood, which I reinforced, but otherwise left as-is to preserve the natural beauty of the wood. It should be noted that this piece should be kept out of sunlight to prevent fading.
Care instructions for the wood 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.
