OBLIQUE RAISED BEAD BOWL IN FIGURED ASH 16.5" x 6.25"
I'm always on the search for really special logs... While all of the materials I use to make my work are of exceptional quality, the Ash this bowl is crafted from is as special as it gets! The wild figure and curl in the wood combined with the beautiful movement created during the drying process will make it a statement piece in any room. The raised bead adds a lovely touch as well as making the bowl feel very secure in your hands... as a bonus, you can serve your favorite foods in it. This bowl begins its journey to your table as green, wet, unseasoned timber that is dried naturally, allowing each bowl to take a unique shape. The Oblique Collection is functional art designed to be a beautiful discussion piece and the perfect bowl for passing beloved family recipes around your table.
- Because this log was so special, I wanted to offer you the opportunity to add everyday bowls made from the same tree ... A perfect way to build a really special forever bowl set for your home! Regularly priced at $50... priced at $40 per bowl (Not available without serving bowl purchase)

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.
