Osage orange bowl no. 2

IMG_0620
Bowl: 2010; Maular pomifera; approx. 9″ dia. by 4″ high.

 

A shallow bowl turned from a log of Osage orange, where the cracks won. Note the skips in the turning visible just to the left of the large crack at the rear.

The crack is filled with cyanoacrylate glue with a mix of coffee grounds and sawdust.

The finished bowl, a gift for a cousin, was photographed in Villiers-sous-Grez, France.
