That's what someone on another forum called it
My favourite type of turning has always been where there is a combination of the original wood and the turned wood giving a tactile contrast as well as the visual one. (Boy that sounbds pretentious )
I haven't done one for a while so when this piece of wood came up I decided to go back to my first love.
Wood is apparently Bradford Pear: Bowl is 6" dia in most directions it's a bit difficult measuring things like this. Approx. 3 1/2" tall, bowl is 3" deep. Finished with wax polish to provide contrast with bark (and lichen )
I know it's not everyone's taste but be interesting to see what folks think
Yes it still has lichen on it and the scar is a small branch that was cut ioff and the wound is also polished
