Bill and Tina Collison of Unicoi, Tennessee, collaborate on wonderful wood-turned pieces.
This bowl is made from fiddle-back maple and embellished with metal leaf vines, which seem to pick up color from their surroundings. One of the vines has "trailed" over to the outside of the bowl!
The bowl, intended for decorative purposes only, is coated with shellac to protect the surface.
The diameter varies ( turned wood has a tendency to move and change slightly as it ages) from 5 1/2 in. to 5 3/4 in., 1 3/4 in. high.
Artist statement included.
