Irish Wood Turned Salad Bowl from the Tree of Heaven with beaded detail.
This beautiful wood was sourced from Co Kilkenny.We love the simple grain pattern of this bowl. The tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima) is a rapidly growing deciduous tree native to China. It was removed from a garden in Co Kilkenny as it is an invasive plant and was crowding out other native trees.
It has been twice turned in our workshop. First in late 2018 before being allowed to dry naturally for over a year.
We finished this bowl with a light coat of beeswax making it food safe.
Approx size 265mm x85mm
