Ambrosia Maple Natural Edge Bowl
This open bowl was turned from a single piece of Ambrosia maple. The term natural edge refers to the bark edge around the rim of the bowl.
Ambrosia maple is a term that is used to describe maple that has been attacked by ambrosia beetles. As the beetles bore through the wood (usually a soft maple, such as red maple), they create tiny tunnels that act as channels for a fungus that produces streaking and color patches. Not to worry – both the fungus and the beetles are destroyed during the process of drying the wood, leaving behind a completely natural enhancement with no loss of structural integrity.
Dimensions: 10-3/8″ in diameter. Bowl is 5-1/2″ tall at the highest point of the rim.
The bowl is finished with multiple coats of durable Danish oil. While Danish oil is food-safe when completely cured, we don’t recommend using this bowl for anything that contains liquid. It would be lovely for hard-skinned fruit such as apples but please avoid exposing the bowl to moisture.
Use and Care Instructions: Smudges and fingerprints can be wiped off with a slightly damp cloth. Dry with a soft towel.
