Back to my first love

Which is making things from the wood that others would throw away. This piece of hawthorn was well deformed and so I had to have a go didn't I? It may not be everyone's cup of tea but the combination of the natural wood, bark and lichen with the polished surface of the turned bowl is something I really like.

Check out the lovely work at First Unique Gifts while you are at it.
