My new "favorite" bowl

Up early this morning, making tea, and saw this: bowls drying after a delightful family dinner last night.  A great sight.

That one in the middle is Hannah's new creation.  She fell in love with one of my recent little bowls and asked if she could paint it.  We got her set up yesterday in the shop, and wow, she did an amazing job.  Sanded back the base layer of turquoise paint to reveal the turning marks, and then added flowers and other details.  I love this bowl!

Birch, soaked in flax oil and beeswax, painted with love.

  1. Your bowls are looking absolutely great, Eric. Beautiful curves and I love the colors. Color and birch seem to be made for each other. Hannah truly did a wonderful job. She has a great eye.
