Local Artist of the Week: Richard Ruehle-Curly Maple Bowl/Platter
Curly maple is a pattern (or "figure") in the grain of the wood that gives it a three-dimensional striped or "ripple" effect (sometimes called "tiger maple"). No one knows for sure what factors or conditions create this pattern, but it is highly prized for its beauty. This shallow bowl or small platter is approximately twelve inches in diameter and is numbered (#3035) and signed by the artist, Richard Ruehle, who lives and creates in Findlay, OH.
