Relief Carved Bowl with Viking Style Dog Motif

This is a hand carved wooden bowl made from a beautiful piece of ash washed up on a Suffolk beach. On one side is a relief carving depicting a Viking style dog motif, the other side has been shaped with flowing curves. There is a natural burl at one corner which I have left untouched to give extra character and texture to this unique, one of a kind bowl. This is a very tactile piece, constantly tempting you to pick it up and caress the shape and finish of its silky surface, which has been rubbed down and lightly finished with natural bees wax.

 

Measurements: Length 10.5 inches. Width 7 inches. Height 3.5 inches.

 

Please note, my style of carving is natural and freehand predominantly using knives and chisels after initial roughing out. I don't believe in overworking my pieces to a clinical, pristine finish such as you might find on a cheap, machine produced item on the high street. I often work from found pieces of wood which may have twisted and cracked as they weathered and dried naturally. I like to leave the occasional old scar as well as others formed during the process of carving, to give each piece a unique character and form a direct connection back to my hands and hint at the previous life of the piece of wood
