Wet turned holly “dish”

Description:  This “dish”  has been turned from a small holly tree trunk that was cut down the day before.  There was a fork in the tree at this point and some damage in the bark implying there might be some interesting grain inside.  It has been turned to obtain a thin wall, finished and left to dry.  As it dried out the wood has distorted and  splits have appeared in the embedded bark.  The centres of the branches have developed little bumps producing a very interesting overall shape.

Wood:   Holly
Status: Available
Price: £5
Size: 10cm diameter by 5cm high
