ORKNEY SYCAMORE, carved bead

A little bowl turned from beautiful local Orkney sycamore. It is always very special to get the chance of some local timber. This tree was originally a little sapling outside a shed in a pot and has now got out of hand and blocking the door. There was no sign of the original pot. Turned from very freshly cut timber this little bowl has moved beautifully as it has dried giving it a wonderful character. Michael has added a pyrography design inspired by Neolithic patterns found on pottery here in Orkney. The beading around the top has hand-carved detail. Finished with several coats of wax and buffed.
