This beautiful wooden bowl has been handcrafted by New Zealand wood turner / carver Gavin Brunton.  It’s been carved from locally sourced pohutukawa wood and has a ebonized exterior finish with a natural wood look inside the bowl. 

All the wood Gavin uses comes from trees which have been damaged in storms or are being pruned for other reasons.

Wood: Pohutukawa
Diameter: 230mm
Height: 120mm
All finishes are food-safe non-toxic plant-based oils
The black ebonised look on this bowl is a very old traditional technique to darken wood. Ebonizing got its name from its traditional use: turning wood black to appear more like ebony, a rare, dense and durable, naturally insect resistant wood prized in the past for heirloom pieces, and one of the very few woods that is naturally black in colour. A classic example is that the black keys on a piano are traditionally made of ebony.
This technique is a wonderful way to turn wood black, as the colour change is actually within the wood, not just sitting on top of it like paint. You can still see all the natural grain and detail of the wood. It also doesn’t fade with time or sunlight so it really is permanent!
