McPhail Tiny Bowl (2014-63)

Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

The predominant wood in this bowl gets its marbled look by a) being a burl, and b) enduring a very cold winter; it's called Frost-Cracked Black Ash Burl, and Jim McPhail of Fairview, North Carolina, likes to show it off in his wonderful bowls!

Product Description

Jim McPhail turns miniature wooden bowls (and vessels) which delight youngsters and mature persons alike!  

His palette includes over 200 woods from all around the world, and each bowl has at least 10 different layers of wood--most have many more than that.  By working in such a small scale, Jim can show off the beauty of certain woods which might be lost on a larger piece. 

The primary woods used in this bowl are frost-cracked Black Ash Burl, book-matched White Oak, and Amboyna Burl.  It is 1 1/4 inches high and 3 inches in diameter.

Each bowl is signed and numbered.  

Artist statement and care card included.
