Epic Spalted Calcite Inlay Bowl # 464

Piece #464 – Spalted Hackberry with Green Calcite inlay – 12″ by 3.5″ – SOLD

 

This epic spalted Hackberry bowl had a branch that rotted off of the tree part that it came from. Rather than leave the hole that it left in the bowl, I filled it in with Calcite dust. On the inside of the bowl I polished it to a high luster. (See on upper right dark spot in first photo below.) The outside of the bowl had a rough inclusion where the branch rotted off. I left the rough Calcite show into the inclusion for added character. (Third photo below.)

The rim of the bowl has a rounded over outside Calcite bead for added beauty. As I said, “This bowl is Epic.”
