Hey Mikey, He Likes It

Chris was alerted to the existence of the tree that this red maple burl bowl was made from when a neighbor's son said he had seen it on a nearby street. He said it "looked like someone had stuck watermelons all over it."

DETAILS: Red Maple Burl, natural bark edge, bark inclusions, turned and carved legs, matte finish
SIZE: 18" w x 10" h
PRIVATE COLLECTION 

Initially the property owner didn't want to clear the tree off his lot. However, after years of persistence (12 to be exact), Chris wound up with the tree and another collector wound up with a remarkable bowl.
