Wooden Bowl by Mark Russell - Silver Birch No416
Mark Russell (woodturner) created this bowl from the wood of the Silver Birch tree.
All bowls have a high quality oil finish. They are food-safe, so can be used for food - or alternatively can be displayed as an art piece.
Mark's creations are from a selection of NZ native timbers and NZ grown exotic timbers and sometimes even select native driftwood.
