Spalted Mango Wooden Bowl – Suis generis
A turned, one-off wooden bowl, made from the timber of everyone’s favourite summer fruit tree. Well, if you’re a fruitbat, anyway.
25cm wide, 8.5cm tall, and rouchly 1.5cm thick, this one-off bowl is turned from a piece of well-seasoned mango wood we traded while visiting Townsville. The spalting gives the grain an attractive diversity of tones. We have a spalted mango bowl on our own dining table, and it goes with everything. Even fruit.
The piece is hand-turned in our small workshop in Deception Bay, Moreton Bay, oiled with Australian natural mineral oil, and buffed with our own Wood Butter conditioner. Like all our larger pieces, it features a small brand at base, and comes with a "Fancy Firewood" tag.
Please note that our artisanal pieces aren't sanded within an inch of their lives, and often retain small marks from chisels, and other imperfections that give them their idiosyncratic characteristics. We think these add to their charm, and we hope you do too. This piece in particular has a small flat spot on one rim.
