This is a miniature fine bowl in figured Queensland maple. I made a really big bowl a few years ago and named it "The Wedding Bowl" ... long story. It was stunning ... great shape and highly figured. One of the off-cuts from the initial shaping contained some of the figure wood, so I kept it ... and finally got around to doing something.
The piece of wood was only small ... at about 10 inches long ... so, my options were limited. I chose to create a miniature which reflected the shape and style of the original wedding bowl.
I have done several miniatures in the past and they always attract attention. This is probably my favourite to date.
