Beautifully simple and very tactile bowl English Oak hand turned by Justin from local wood. 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 and then polished to a high gloss and durable finish. 

Oak wood symbolises strength, truth, protection, authority, prosperity and bravery.  Oak is one of the most sacred trees. It carries the energy of kingship and wise rule, personal sovereignty, authority, power, protection, sealing or opening doors, endurance, and invocation of wisdom, fertility, and abundance.  The Druids associated the oak with the Wren. Closely aligned with the elements Earth, Water, and Spirit, the Oak is considered to be the most powerful and the most sacred to the Druids. Wizards consider this the most amplified wood to use in spells that work with time and counter spells. Oak brings vitality and long life. Oak magic inspires bravery, presence, leadership skills, prosperity, and strength “Mighty oaks from little acorns grow” goes the quote. This tree inspires us to be strong in body, mind and spirit. It is a sacred and revered tree representing endurance, power, protection and authority. 

Oak being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of duir on the bowl for extra energy and protection.  

This bowl is approx 5.5”/13.5cm in diameter and is 1.5”/3.5cm inches deep
