Local Artist of the Week: Richard Ruehle-Red Mallee Bowl with "Living Edge" Rim
The Australian red mallee tree yields a striking reddish heartwood bound by pale sapwood that is both dense and heavy. This shallow bowl (it sits about 2 inches high) sports a wide "living edge" rim which is approximately 16 by 13 inches and is beautifully rendered as "primitive" or "rustic" due to the presence of characteristic incursions in the wood, some of which go completely through the rim. Signed and numbered (#3879) by the artist, who works and lives in Findlay, OH.
