Rosalind is a walnut wood bowl that I hand turned on my lathe. For this piece I used responsibly sourced from right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. I retained a small portion of the inner bark on two spots at the outer edge of the bowl’s rim. Part of the beauty of this piece is how the dark heartwood radiates out toward the sapwood and inner bark. It’s hard to capture in photos, but the lighter sapwood has beautiful blue and lavender hues and shimmers in the light.
The overall walnut wood bowl measures approximately 12-3/8″ wide by 1-3/4″ tall, with the inner bowl portion measuring 9″ wide and 1-1/4″ deep. I polished the wood with food safe walnut oil followed by a protective coating of carnauba wax and beeswax to provide a durable finish and rich luster.
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.
