Handturned turned walnut decorative bowl, intentionally made by a talented woodturner in Ottawa, ON.
Note from the maker: Woodturners are often on the lookout for atypical woods to turn. They search for woods that have unique colouration and patterns, woods that have burls, spalting, weird cracks and crotch pieces. They are willing to pay high prices to acquire these pieces, pieces that would surprise them with their uniquness. And collectors pay even more to buy objects made from them.
