5 Barns Bowl #2 *PIC*

Steve Antonucci
>Dom Greco said he had a big silver maple log put aside for me. We backed our trucks up tailgate to tailgate in the main parking area of the 5 Barns complex over the past summer, and it took two of us to get the wood from his truck to mine.

I ponder it for a long time when I got it back to the shop. What would I do with it? It was bigger than I could swing, and I decided that the best use would be to make some "smaller bowls".

This bowl is about 15" across and 5" deep. I love Hawaiian calabash forms, so I thought I'd give it a try. Little bit of spalt, little bit of curl, and some ambrosia to boot- what else could you ask for?

Comments are welcome, again.
