Beautiful and elegant 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 shape simple to show off the lovely grain patterns and beautiful natural colours of the wood. Approx size 7cm/2.75" high and 13.5cm/5.5" 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(
