This medium-sized Manzanita bowl was turned thin to avoid cracking. It did move a bit as it dried giving it an interesting shape. There are a couple of "heat cracks" from the fire that have been repaired. A small patch of surface bark has been retained. It is made from a tree that burned during the October 2017 Tubbs Fire. The base burned out and the tree toppled over, but much of the wood was preserved aside from some cracks caused by the intense heat of the fire. It is rare to find large Manzanita trees available for turning. WOOD: Manzanita; DIAMETER: 8 1/4"; HEIGHT: 3"; WEIGHT: 8 Ounces.
