Beautiful bowl and a beautiful tree, I wish we could grow those around here (even if they would not bloom at Christmas.) Thanks for posting the bowl and the picture of the tree.

I clicked on the link Torus offered. So, that’s SF’s version of LA’s Ficuseses.
That’s a gorgeous piece, Keith. I know you’ve probably answered this before, but, are the legs glued on? This goes, also, to all the other appendages you seem so fond of. It’s a cool look.

Beautiful piece. I see the New Zealanders have enough common sense to plant these obvious huge trees in the middle of a field, unlike the starry eyed planters in San Fran who placed them along heavily populated residential streets….Gee what could go wrong, they’re so pretty….
