This Oak bowl has a raised base with several decorative ring cut into the rim and the base. Julie burned a lovely heron design to honor her watercolor exhibit at the Laguna de Santa Rosa in Heron Hall. It would make a nice shallow serving bowl with a bit of an Asian flair. The finish is food safe. WOOD: Oak; SIZE: 9 1/2" Diameter by 2 1/4" Tall; WEIGHT: 13 Ounces.
