Local Artist of the Week: Richard Ruehle Yellow Box Footed Bowl with "Living Edge" Rim
The Australian yellow box tree yields a rich brown wood that is both dense and heavy. This shallow footed bowl (it sits about 2 and one half inches high) sports a wide "living edge" rim which is approximately 14 by 9 inches and is beautifully rendered as "primitive" or "rustic" due to the presence of characteristic cracks in the wood, some of which go completely through the bowl. Signed and numbered (#2272) by the artist, who works and lives in Findlay, OH.
