Airbrushed Oak Burl Bowl is a collaboration with insects. There was a time when I would throw away wood that was in this condition. Now I seek it out. My theory is that the uglier the wood log the more beautiful will be the finished bowl.
Airbrushed Oak Burl Bowl with dyes is handmade on a wood lathe. It features beautiful grain and colorful markings. The color dye brings out the incredible grain in Oak Burl. Signed on the bottom with my Alan Adler signature.
Picture a gorgeous bowl like this filled with candy on your kitchen table. This bowl is perfect for spices or any other utilitarian need. If you are constantly misplacing your keys and phone this bowl is perfect as a cell phone holder or jewelry keeper. Just drop the items into the bowl when you get home and your life will be simplified.
This item like this will be perfect in your home or as a gift to a special friend. How about a 5th Anniversary Wedding Gift which happens to be wood? Need a Birthday Gift, Holiday Gift, Housewarming Gift?

Care for a wood bowl
Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
