Planet Earth Bowl – Wood Art
Planet Earth Bowl is Turned, Carved and Decorated with pyrography symbols for Sea Life, Water, Flora, Humans, and the Galaxy. The size is 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches
Pyrography is a wood branding technique. Boy Scouts call them wood burners. You remember them as being totally ineffective tools. They were toys and cannot be compared to the tools that artists and makers use to burn images onto wood.
The wood is Norfolk Island Pine which has the unusual characteristic of becoming translucent when it is soaked in Boiled Linseed oil for a few weeks. Hold this bowl up to the light and it is translucent and looks like tortoiseshell.
If you collect art or are starting your collection Planet Earth Bowl belongs in your collection. Picture it as a centerpiece on a shelf. Surely it will be a conversation piece. This will make a wonderful gift for that special person in your life. You know that wood is the Fifth Wedding Anniversary Gift. Maybe a Birthday Gift or Housewarming Gift is deserving of that special person in your life.

Care for your Planet Earth Bowl
Keep out of direct sunlight
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.
