A large log of Texas Pecan offered me the opportunity to turn this special bowl. Nice mix of heartwood and sapwood offers a delightful contrast of colors in this piece. I turned the bowl "green" (just after the tree had been taken down to make way for a new home) and then let nature do "its thing" as the bowl dried. The resulting shape is a unique and gentle twisting movement. Would make a terrific fruit bowl, salad bowl, or load it up with collectible rocks and shells! Hand-sanded smooth and topped off with a food-safe finish.
