Description

Bradford Pear heartwood color ranges from a pale pink to a light reddish brown, making for an excellent turning wood for bowl making. Most bowls are made on a wood lathe, but Richard Jackson hand carves all his wooden bowls starting with a large chunk of wood just begging to become a bowl. He looks for downed trees that might have interesting insect damage and wormholes like this piece, then crafts the bowl to accentuate the wood grain and unique characteristics.

These common trees have been used extensively for landscaping, specifically down a driveway because of their beautiful blooming flowers during spring. Unfortunately, mature trees often lose limbs, or split in half, due to high wind storms or hurricanes.  The wood is extremely dense and fine grained making it particularly good for carving, but downed trees usually end up in the wood chipper. Richard looks for every opportunity to reclaim pear wood, and this awesome bowl is one fine example of his efforts.
