Richard Ruehle Footed Redwood Burl Bowl
A burl is typically a growth on a tree truck that is filled with small knots from dormant buds. Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity, but burl wood is very hard to work with because the grain is twisted and interlocked, but those characteristics also yield an extremely dense and hard wood which is resistant to splitting and highly sought after for making bowls and platters.
This handsome redwood burl footed bowl exhibits a classic beauty that reflects the age old grandeur of the redwood trees from which it is crafted. The bowl is approximately six inches in diameter and stands 5 inches tall on its pedestal. The piece is signed and numbered by the artist and is accompanied by a Certificate of Provenance attesting to your ownership of an original work of art.
