Earlier this year, during a thunderstorm, the Hollow Tree dropped a limb. Because every part of her is precious, the wood scraps were salvaged to make small bowls. They are rough-hewn and knotted. However, the holes, cracks, and ripples have their own beauty. They are the bits that remain of decades of memories: foraging birds, burrowing creatures, jostling winds, droughts, lightning strikes, voices raised in song, tinkling bells. If you choose, you can use your bowl to share an offering from your own world with the Hollow Tree.
Each hand-turned olive wood bowl is unique, with natural occlusions and marks. It measures between 2.5-3 inches across. Wash it by hand and maintain it with occasional application of olive oil. It was manufactured in a sustainable fashion, using the offcuts of wood created during the pruning process. (Cultivated olive trees are pruned to increase their longevity.)
Rough-Hewn Bowl was featured in the Hollow Tree Box (August 2022).
