Stunning large bowl crafted from Devon Alder wood. We are blessed to be guardians of a small woodland in Devon and this bowl is made from an old tree that fell last summer

Justin has kept the natural edge on the wood and sympathetically turned the bowl to make the most of the beautiful grain patterns and colours. Approx size 9cm/3.5" high and 25.5cm/10" diameter.

Alder being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of fern on the back for extra energy and protection.  

Alder Wood encourages journeys, self confidence, bravery, and spiritual growth. Alder was revered by our ancestors as being almost human as when alder is freshly cut the wood goes a deep red colour almost like blood! It is also the elementals tree and the green leaves and bark were traditionally used to dye fabrics green.

This is a truly unique bowl, Justin likes to maintain the natural feel and energy of the wood as much as possible. The bowl has been finished with oil and wax, giving a lovely soft sheen and feel. 

All our handcrafted items are created with love, positive intentions and just a little magick )0(
