This is a shallow ring or trinket bowl made from a piece of rippled Australian Blackwood. The timber is nearly always very bland and uninteresting but occasionally it forms the distinctive grain pattern shown in this piece. The amount of ripple varies considerably and the piece that this bowl is made from is particularly impressive. I have only been able to buy a couple of small pieces so the number of things I will be able to make will be limited. Despite its name the timber is golden brown.
The price includes postage and packing to UK mainland addresses.
