This is a piece of silver birch felled in Connah's Quay last year. The timber was turned "green" and the drying process was accelerated using a domestic microwave. The piece was rough turned, leaving the wall and base thickness approximately double the intended thickness, then subjected to 7 x 3 minute bursts at full power with at least an hour in between each "blast" and the weight noted before each. Over the process the piece lost approximately 25% of its weight, about 275 grams.
The bowl measures approximately 18cms in diameter and 9 cms deep.
As with all my pieces I try to leave some evidence of the outside of the tree. The bowl shows two pieces of bark on the lower edges. The bowl is finished using my own beeswax polish made from wax donated by a friend who keeps bees on our allotments.
