SKU: WOOD-21 Category:


Combination of wood burning and iron acetate on this large white spruce bowl, was one of my first decorated pieces. I experimented with several techniques, including adding a copper-based glue to fill in and stabilize a crack in the knot on the inside of the bowl. The bottom has a flower petal design that is stippled with a wood burned pattern. 2.25 inches high by 12.25 inch diameter. food-grade, flat finish. Signed by Jeff Hall, 2/1/17

Additional Information

iron acetate = not a dye, this vinegar steel wool solution is painted onto the wood and through a chemical interaction with the lignin in the wood (the stuff that makes wood strong) ebonizes the wood. It yields a lovely affect because the amount of lignin varies within the annual growth rings and the wood overall so you get a lovely gradation of color unique to each piece of wood. flat finish = This is a made from a mixture of walnut oil, beeswax and carnauba for a deep penetrating and durable but soft looking food-grade finish. To clean, just wipe with a damp rag.
