This is a white ash bowl with carved feet. Made from a crotch piece with chrysacolla inlaid in the bark inclusions. This is my first attempt at carving feet on the bottom of a piece.
Measures 6.5” x 3.5”

This is a beautiful bowl and the carved feet are a nice accent on it. You did a fine piece of work on this piece.

Thank you Charles, I’ve grown quite attached to this piece, and I’m sad to see it go. :-(

Very nice work, caving out the feet is a nice look.

Love this Bowl so well done you should be very proud … Only advice from me is your profile says Novice Turner.
Should change that because you obviously have great skill and vision.. Well done.

Thanks Bazz, I was aiming for a cauldron type shape on it. I really liked this bowl and had a hard time letting it go… ;-)

I like the shorter feet on this one, will have to try your idea someday.

Not familiar with chrysacolla, but it sure adds a nice touch. Can you relate a bit on how you work it in to the wood?

Thank you,

sure, chrysocolla is a fairly soft stone… I use a small piece of steel pipe to crush it, and just fill in the voids with the crushed stone and CA glue… I make the stone proud of the surface of the wood then file it down flush and sand it smooth…

hopefully that explains it well enough
