Cryphonectria acaciarum

Large hollowform, with a top edge created by the shape of the tree.

Wavey, bold and substantial, but also carries a delicate fineness.

The waves on the top are reminisent of the flowing of a forrest stream. The body of this piece is marked with frequent spalting, where a fungus has grown in the wood, stained it with unique marks and patterns, then as the wood dried, the fungus died off too. 

Width: 28cm
