I rescued some highly spalted birch from my son’s firewood supply. So the fungus-ravaged wood turned into more fungus.

The spalted birch really makes it as a mushroom. Nice work.

Very fitting creation.
Almost looks like it could be a bowl and handle/hammer for smashing avocados into guacamole.
Well done!
