BANNETON BOWL IN EBONIZED CHERRY 15"X5.25”
Ebonized Cherry 15x5.25
Inspired by my passion for breadmaking, the beads are hand-turned to mimic the look of bread-proofing baskets. Designed with the vision of this textured bowl being passed around a table of friends and family, sharing a meal. Each bowl in this collection is dried naturally, allowing the bowls to take their shape organically before being ebonized and sanded.
• Ebonized Cherry
• This bowl was turned from a tree harvested in Cherry Grove Pennsylvania. It was less than 50 years old, young for a tree of its size as it was in an area it didn’t need to fight for sun and nutrients. Northwest Pennsylvania is known to grow some of the very best Cherry in the world as our climate and soil is perfect.

Your Alexander Designs piece arrives finished with a food safe oil and wax combination. Proper cleansing and seasoning will maintain its natural anti-bacterial properties. To prevent splitting or cracking, never soak your piece in water, put it in the dishwasher, refrigerator, or microwave.
After use, hand wash with soap and water, rinse, and hand dry. After it has been allowed to completely dry, after repeated use it may seem a little dull or dried out from washing. If so, it could use a bit of seasoning. The following are great options: Our favorite is our made in-house Wood Wax. Simply rub a small amount of Wood Wax onto the piece with a small lint free cloth (In our home we leave a small piece of cotton cloth in the Wood Wax tin, as to never waste any product), let the wood wax absorb into the piece for 20-30 minutes, then buff off the excess with a lint free cloth. Our second choice would be a heat-treated walnut oil such as Mahoney’s Walnut Oil (it can be found at several retailers online. Lastly, (our least favorite option) you can use Mineral Oil as it’s food safe, however it does evaporate and will require more frequent applications. Always avoid using any vegetable-based oils as they will turn rancid over time.
Following these care instructions will allow your piece to be enjoyed for generations. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email, or call, we are here to help you.
