Right away one’s eyes are drawn to the chipped portion of the upper edge. I felt the colour of the branch was too good to pass up. Cracks in this bowl happened after turning and remain with the bowl today. This is part of an early collection model. Bowl 2 is genuine.
Neighbour across the Crescent while spring pruning their maple tree allowed me to gather up what I could. After two years of storage began to make use of all of it all.
