  • Maple Leaf Bowl

    I had a nice 15 inch diameter bowl roughed out from an ash fork, but it developed a couple cracks on the rim while drying.

    Bummer!

    But I was able to position the maple leaf outline in a way that eliminated the cracks.

                As others have said...well done. I particularly like the colouring you have accomplished, definitely October-like. Roy

                  I steal them! Years ago I saw a carved maple leaf bowl online somewhere and thought I can turn something similar. I've done a half dozen or so, this is the latest and biggest.

                    Thanks for sharing. Wish I'd seen this idea before my last bonfire.

                      I've seen a few maple leaf bowls before and this is as nice as any of them. What did you use for colouring as that really brings this piece to life.

                        Truly amazing. I would not know where to start.

                          Anneline dyes, Orange, then green overtop around the edge while still wet so it won't be too green and will blend into the orange. Then if necessary rub with wet paper towel to blend the green into the orange so no demarcation line will show. Then some very light sanding with 600 grit in the center and add some yellow there, wet-blending it in as well.

                              Very nice recovery piece. Thanks for sharing it and its back story. I like it when a slight failure can be turned into a beautiful object d'art like this.
